Based on the acclaimed animated film Amaqqut Nunaat: The Country of Wolves, and adapted from a centuries-old traditional Inuit folktale, this visually stunning graphic novel takes readers on a mysterious adventure with two brothers who become lost on the sea ice. It begins as an average hunting trip for two young men, but when they find themselves lost, the only safe haven to be found for miles - a mysterious village filled with the sounds of drum dancing and revelry -turns out to be even more dangerous than the frigid ocean.

About the authors

Neil Christopher is an educator, author, and filmmaker. He first moved to the North many years ago to help start a high school program in Resolute Bay, Nunavut. It was those students who first introduced Neil to the mythical inhabitants from Inuit traditional stories. The time spent in Resolute Bay changed the course of Neil’s life. Since that first experience in the Arctic, Nunavut has been the only place he has been able to call home. Neil has worked with many community members to record and preserve traditional Inuit stories. Together with his colleague, Louise Flaherty, and his brother, Danny Christopher, Neil started a small publishing company in Nunavut called Inhabit Media Inc., and has since been working to promote Northern stories and authors.
