Magic Words From the Ancient Oral Tradition of the Inuit by Edward Field

The Inuits have ancient traditions passed down from their ancestors.  Danish explorer Knud Rasmussen kept a diary and Mr. Field worked on translating it and telling the Inuit's tales he found within.

Vanita Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

The illustrations in this book are vibrant and alive.  They have lots of colors, artwork of the animals in their traditional designs and the ideas that are expressed are wondrous.

Long ago, men could become animals and animals could become men.  They all got along and even simple requests or a single word could cause magic.

Looking at this world made me wish our world was more like that.  I'm content being me, but having peace and quiet would be nice.  Especially if we all got along.

This book is a joy to read.  See what you think...
