The Lamp, the Ice, and the Boat Called Fish
The author consulted Barrow residents to retell in picture book format the story of the ill-fated ship, the Karluk. The scratchboard illustrations are a good way to tell this true story, which has been told in several versions for adults including most recently The Ice Master by Jennifer Niven. Few survival stories are more harrowing, and the skills of an Inupiaq family make all the difference to the survivors.
