Description

"You should always go moose hunting with a partner."
-James Itsi

For over 50,000 years, the Great Hunt shaped human existence, creating a vital spiritual reality where people, animals, and the land shared intimate bonds. This compelling first-hand account by Larry Frolick takes the reader deep into one of the last refuges of hunting society: Canada's far north. The author travelled five years with First Nations Elders in remote communities across the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut, experiencing the raw power of their ancient traditions. His vivid narrative combines accounts of daily life, unpublished archival records, current scientific research, First Nations myths, and personal observation to illuminate the northern wilderness, its people, and their complex relationships. Readers of ecological travel narratives and Arctic adventures will enjoy Crow Never Dies.
