The Teachers’ Guide to accompany Napachee by Robert Feagan.
Napachee is tired of Sachs Harbour, Northwest Territories. He is tired of the traditional Inuit hunt and of fighting with his father, who shuns snowmobiles for dog sleds and tents for igloos. When two men from the Edmonton zoo fly in to capture a polar bear cub, Napachee spies his chance at a trip to the big city, but soon discovers that life there is not what he had expected.
