    I m not certain how much I enjoyed this I appreciated the author s honesty, and the scratchy art was fun and managed to convey a lot.

    An insightful, self reflexive memoir of the author s journey to small Inuit communities in Nunavik, the northern part of the province of Quebec Hellman shares his thoughts and perceptions of the North while never losing sight of his own racial privilege.
