Timothy White is one of the most sought-after celebrity photographers in the country. His work has appeared in some of the most recognizable movie posters of our time, the covers of countless high-profile publications, and dozens of album covers for an extraordinary roster of musicians. He is the author of Portraits (2001), Indian Larry (2006), and Hollywood Pinups (2008). He lives in New York City.
Lawrence Millman has written fifteen books, including such titles as Our Like Will Not Be There Again, Last Places, NORTHERN LATITUDES, An Evening Among Headhunters, HIKING TO SIBERIA, A Kayak Full of Ghosts, and most recently the first ever guidebook to New England mushrooms. His essays and articles have appeared in National Geographic, Smithsonian, Sports Illustrated, Atlantic Monthly, and Outside.

To give you an idea, some of the specific stories describe men who marry rocks and old people who marry insects, children who grow antlers, children who eat their parents, animals who steal body parts from human corpses and women with iron tails.
This collection is a great read, (...and not for the queasy).
Highly recommended for any kayakers with a fascination for Greenland and Innuit history & culture
I prize my rare and expensive academic Inuit ethnographies. But I simply love reading this book. These stories were meant to be enjoyed and shared, not just stuffed and cataloged.
