A young woman pulls on her wolf skin so she can bring down an elk. The sudden collapse of a Grandfather brings an estranged family together in a small hospital room. A starving Inuit mother is forced to abandon her newborn after missing the caribou migration. Death, mental health and arctic longing are just a few of the subjects explored in this collection of poems.
