Crow Never Dies: Life on the Great Hunt (Wayfarer) (Paperback)
"It was a different crow, but the same crow, you understand? Because there is only one Crow. God made them all black and identical-looking because there is no reason for them to be different birds. That's why you can never kill a crow, because it lives forever. Crow never dies " -- James ItsiFor over 50,000 years, the Great Hunt has shaped human existence, creating a vital spiritual reality where people, animals, and the land share intimate bonds. Author Larry Frolick takes the reader deep into one of the last refuges of hunting societies: Canada's far north. Based on his experiences travelling with First Nations Elders in remote communities across the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut, this vivid narrative combines accounts of daily life, unpublished archival records, First Nations' stories and Traditional Knowledge with personal observation to illuminate the northern wilderness, its people, and the complex relationships that exist among them.
