Herve Paniaq is a respected elder from Igloolik Nunavut. He writes about the walruses who live in the Arctic Ocean and who have been a part of the culture and survival of his people for generations.
This informative introduction to walruses includes their range, diet, babies, their predators, tusks, and information on whiskers and flippers. 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.
Inuit traditional uses for walrus are included at the end.
