Tikta'liktak: An Inuit-Eskimo Legend

Tikta'liktak: An Inuit-Eskimo Legend

by James M. Houston, Natalie M. Rosinsky

"A young hunter is trapped on an ice floe and marooned on a barren island. The Eskimo survives freezing weather, an attack by a polar bear, and the long journey that brings him safely home. The author's distinctive drawings help make this a memorable book." — The New York Times Book Review
