Solomon Awa teaches traditional knowledge at Nunavut Arctic College. He writes about the narwhal whales who live in the Arctic Ocean year round and who have been a part of the culture and survival of his people for generations.
This informative introduction to narwhal whales includes their range, diet, babies, their predators, tusks and information on under the ice.. Gently and warmly illustrated, the book hits a high point with the carefully drawn skeleton which sits against a black background illuminating each bone and creating a feeling of mystery and power.
