book review by Asia

TIKTA'LIKTAK
by James Houston

"This book is a legendary tale about a young Inuit Eskimo man who survives by himself in the wilderness in the freezing cold Canadian arctic.  He kills seals, a big bear, birds and arctic fox to survive.  I like how it tells the details of how he killed the animals and how far he had to travel to get home to his family.  I like how the author describes the island and the wilderness around Tikta'Liktak.  This is the first time I have read a book about Eskimos and I really liked it."  ~ Asia McNabb, 9

I am so glad you liked the review. I hope you can read the book. I have also read a few books about North American Indians and I might write reviews for those books too.
