The Shadows That Rush Past
A Collection of Frightening Inuit FolktalesBook - 2011
The Shadows That Rush Past introduces young readers to some of the creepiest, scariest stories from Inuit mythology. These tales, told by critically acclaimed writer Rachel Qitsualik, bring to life four creatures from Inuit mythology: the amautalik, akhla, nanurluk, and mahaha. These tales are filled with child-stealing ogresses; half-man, half--grizzly bear monsters; ice-covered polar bears 10 times the size of normal bears; and a smiling creature that surprises unsuspecting campers and tickles them to death.
