Arctic Giants

In ancient times, giants ruled the Arctic. For hundreds of years, Inuit stories of these creatures have been carried down from generation to generation. This book is the only full-length volume to chronicle the legends of these giants of the North. Based on Inuit oral tradition and extensive research, this book recounts each frightening legend. Illustrated in Gothic style, this book is bound to bring chills to its readers.

About the Authors

Neil Christopher

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.
