The Shadows That Rush Past

A Collection of Frightening Inuit Folktales

shdows_that_rush_thumbThis book introduces young readers to some of the creepiest, scariest stories from Inuit mythology. These tales, told by critically acclaimed Inuit writer Rachel A. Qitsualik, bring to life four fearsome creatures: the amautalik, akhla, nanurluk, and mahaha. These tales are filled with child-stealing ogresses; monsters that are half-man, half-grizzly bear; polar bears one hundred times the size of normal bears; and a smiling creature that surprises unsuspecting campers and tickles them to death!

Written by Rachel A. Qitsualik | Illustrated by Emily Fiegenschuh and Larry MacDougall
