Ein Städtchen am Rande des Eismeers im Norden Kanadas. Eine Kindheit, geprägt von der übermächtigen Natur und einem sich auflösenden Zusammenhalt. Ein mutiges Mädchen, das die alten Mythen entdeckt und erwachsen wird. Tanya Tagaq erzählt poetisch, sinnlich, mit großer Kraft. Der Winter ist vorbei und damit die Zeit, die die Kinder im Haus verbringen müssen, weil es draußen bitterkalt ist, hoch im Norden Kanadas, am Rande des Eismeers. Im Frühling haben die Kinder das Städtchen in der Hand, streunen auf der Suche nach Abenteuern durch die Straßen und durch die Tundra. Nach so wilden Abenteuern, dass sie dabei sogar das Leben riskieren. Die Erwachsenen sind mit eigenen Problemen beschäftigt und können keinen Halt bieten. Im Gegenteil. Tanya Tagaq erzählt in diesem atemberaubenden Debüt von der Kindheit und Jugend eines Mädchens in der Arktis: von einer übermächtigen Natur, von den allgegenwärtigen Füchsen, den majestätischen Polarbären und den Mythen der Inuit. Unter den furchterregenden und verzaubernden Polarlichtern verschwimmen für das Mädchen die Grenzen zwischen Mensch und Natur, Zeit und Raum, und sie begibt sich auf eine verstörend sinnliche Selbstsuche, um die Wunden zu heilen, an denen in einer sich auflösenden Gemeinschaft alle tragen.
