Yuggaankuk Mayeraaghpagenkuk (The Eskimo Man and the Giant).
The legend of an Eskimo hunter, trapped on a moving, melting ice flow and subsequently rescued by a friendly but shy giant who returns him to his village, is presented in the St. Lawrence Island Yup'ik language and in English. Ten full page color illustrations by J. Leslie Boffa visually tell the story for those readers who may not yet have mastered the written word. (NEC)
