Winner of an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award (2003)

White missionaries have come to 12-year-old Minuk’s tiny Yup’ik village. Other children run away from the newcomers, but Minuk is too curious to be afraid.

New customs are coming, too, but clothes are still made the traditional way. Minuk’s one-of-a-kind parka is sewn from arctic ground-squirrel pelts, with triangles of white caribou fur decorating the hood. Her wolverine-fur ruff and tassels and her caribou-fur boots with sealskin bottoms keep her warm and dry.

The clothes that her mother and grandmother sew with such skill and love keep Minuk safe through what turns out to be the darkest winter of her life.

9-inch Minuk™ doll includes stand and Minuk: Ashes in the Pathway paperback book by Kirkpatrick Hill.
