An Illustrated guide to the mythical creatures, spirits and animals of Greenland

The world of Greenlandic mythology is inhabited by a motley crew of dangerous, cheeky and fantastical beings that have played a vital role in Inuit beliefs and stories throughout the ages.

This book is a collection of what is generally known about these diverse beings, spirits and animals and a description of their appearance and features.

You will also find a brief history of Greenland and the shaman tradition. Illustrations by contemporary Greenlandic and Nordic artists transport the mythological beings into the 21st Century.
