Description


Now available in paperback!

Based on the acclaimed animated film Amaqqut Nunaat: The Country of Wolves, this visually stunning graphic novel takes readers on a mysterious adventure with two brothers who are lost at sea. It begins as an average hunting trip for two young men. But when they find themselves adrift at sea, the only safe haven to be found for miles - a mysterious village filled with the sounds of drum dancing and revelry - turns out to be even more dangerous than the frigid ocean.

About the Author


Neil Christopher is an educator, author, and filmmaker. He first moved to the North many years ago to help start a high school program in Resolute Bay, Nunavut. It was those students who first introduced Neil to the mythical inhabitants from Inuit traditional stories. The time spent in Resolute Bay changed the course of Neil’s life. Since that first experience in the Arctic, Nunavut has been the only place he has been able to call home. Neil has worked with many community members to record and preserve traditional Inuit stories. Together with his colleague, Louise Flaherty, and his brother, Danny Christopher, Neil started a small publishing company in Nunavut called Inhabit Media Inc., and has since been working to promote Northern stories and authors.Ramón Pérez is a Canadian freelance cartoonist and writer working predominantly in comic books, children’s books, and magazines as a graphic storyteller. Recent career highlights include Captain America and the First Thirteen, Deadpool Team-Up #883, and the Eisner award-winning graphic novel Tale of Sand, which Ramón directly adapted from the original screenplay by Jim Henson and Jerry Juhl for Archaia Publishing. Ramón lives in Toronto.
