Fourteen dogs clawed at the smooth, hard ice as they sped forwards, the gang lines bouncing as they pulled the long, broad sledge smartly across the ice. The dogs could smell nanoq, the ice bear, its scent intoxicating, elusive but close.
For fans of Jack London adventure stories, The Bear Hunt is an action-packed quick read set on the sea ice in Greenland. Two brothers are on the hunt for a polar bear, but only one will return by dog sledge to the settlement of Nuugaatsiaq.
The Bear Hunt is the first of a series of short stories featuring two brothers: Âjak the hunter, and his shaman brother, Tulugaq.
The story contains cultural aspects of the Greenlandic way of life, and a twist in each tale.
The Greenlanders series of stories will be released individually, and collected in omnibus editions.
Each story takes about twenty-five minutes to read.
