Pomiuk, Prince of the North
Winner of the 2005 Ann Connor Brimer Award, short-listed for the 2006 Hackmatack Award
The year is 1893, the place is Chicago, and the most fabulous fair the Earth has ever seen becomes an unusual home for a young Labrador Inuit boy dubbed Pomiuk, Prince of the North, who captures the hearts of the millions of people who click through the turnstiles to see Eskimo Village, one of dozens of living cultures showcased at the exhibition. Just as he did so long ago, Pomiukâ€™s adventures will once again charm and enthrall all those who come his way.
