Nanook and his father Babook are Inuits living in the Alaskan tundra. Their story is set in the 1940’s, when Nanook was just twelve years old, and hunting and fishing were the only way to feed his family. Nanook watches as his father prepares for a fishing trip and is excited when Babook decides he’s finally old enough to go off on his own. Before he goes, Babook warns Nanook to stay in Big Bend, a safe area free from bears. However, Nanook ignores his father’s warning, roams too far, and soon finds himself in a dangerous situation. When Babook rescues him, he demonstrates a father’s unconditional love, and Nanook learns a valuable lesson. --publisher
