A Boy Among Polar Bears

The enchanting story of Apak Taqtu, a young Inuit boy who makes his first trips out on the Arctic sea-ice with his father. He learns the skills essential to survival in this hostile wilderness - building igloos, travelling by dog sled, hunting seals and narwhals, and avoiding the unwelcome attention of polar bears. A stunning portrait of the Canadian high Arctic, one of the coldest yet most beautiful places on our planet, through the eyes of the remarkable people who call it home.
