Tulugaq

An Oral History of Ravens


Author: Kerry McClusky

Publisher's Description:

Ravens appear in mythology and folklore the world over. Few other birds have inspired such simultaneous dread and fascination, or given rise to so many forms of artistic expression. But in the Arctic, ravens are not only mythological and artistic figures, but also brilliant scavengers, fascinating communicators, and daily nuisances.

The result of ten years of research and interviews, Tulugaq examines the raven’s place in Canadian Arctic society and reveals a bird that is at times loved, maligned, dreaded, and even revered. With dozens of photographs and first-person stories from communities across Nunavut, the Yukon, and the Northwest Territories, Tulugaq is a visually stunning examination of one of the animal kingdom’s most complicated figures.
