The Curse of the Shaman is the story of Wolverine and his family. They are Inuit people in the days before European contact. The story is one of adventure, survival and family relationships. The characters are funny and realistic. The setting and actions ring with authenticity. There is a respect for the culture and peoples represented. The story mixes legend, history and romance. It is a wonderful peek at a culture and society. Thematically links to family, culture, Inuit peoples, the North, legends, history, adventure, survival, relationship. Michael Kusugak.
