What a treasure! This is a completely unique book, as enjoyable for adults as for kids, an autobiographical, matter-of-fact record of one man's experience of shamanism. For him, shamanism was simply an integral part of his life. His culture has changed around him, and such a life will never be possible again. How lucky we are to have such a record!

This book surprised me as I first saw it as an endearing picture book talking about igloos. But when I read it, it became a real eye opener. With Tookoome's humble way of telling stories I feel that I got a very clear picture of what it was like for him to go from living the most real of lifestyles on the land, to a contrived one, being forced to live in a settlement. Tookoome tells a sad yet beautiful tale that will make you think about what white man (Kabloonaq) has done in the name of "progress", and how it has forever altered the course of how life was intended to be lived.
