By placing the baby outdoors to die, the shaman father consigns his only daughter to rescuing her brother and transporting him to the frozen high islands of their mothers people. Life for no one in the family can ever be the same. The terrified young woman churns with resentment over duty thrust upon her, and sets out upon a black and lonely winter trail.

Here, she finds fierce animals . . . predatory people . . . friendship . . . and perhaps love as she learns to accept triumph and defeat with equal dignity and growing confidence. In this quest adventure painted on a pallette authentic in culture and environment, we enter the world of traditional Inupiat and the little-known High Arctic filled with danger, darkness, stark beauty-and harsh demands which permit no second chance.
