A story of the Western-world meeting our nearly unknown neighbors to the North. Religion has its violent effects in our world and the Inuit people also get their murderous rage on when they're introduced to the Bible in the early 20th Century. The book is quite short which made it a very fast read. It's also a tale of the author's (whose really a naturalist above all else) disdain for our technologically induced world. iDevices, artificial brains and Nintendo's all get the stink eye by Lawrence Millman. He talks about how the Inuit *SPOILER* laughed at 9/11 believing it was a movie akin to the Towering Inferno, rather than real life and explained the same people couldn't wrap their heads around how seals had killed Bin Laden in the mountains of Pakistan... The book is loaded with great quotes that I put on Facebook and Instagram more than once (I'm sure Lawrence Millman would be against me for that). Looking forward to his other works. I recommend this title to anyone who wants a digital detox, loves the Arctic or wants to blame religion for a little bit more...
