Margaret E. Murie crafts an engrossing tale of Eskimo life in "Island Between", as she tells the story of Toozak, a young Inuit from Sevuokuk, known today as St. Lawrence Island. In lyrical prose she chronicles Toozak's journey, weaving stories of his life as a hunter with narratives of love and jealousy - and even ancient Eskimo myths - to create a moving tale of early Eskimo culture and the impact of its eventual encounters with other peoples. "Island Between" is a beautifully written novel that explores one man's complex and delicate relationship with the natural environment and his fellow man.
