Michael Kusugak grew up in the Northwest Territories. He never forgot his earliest years, living in igloos and sod huts, and the stories he heard every night, falling asleep in the flickering light of a qulliq. Michael worked for 15 years for the government and now writes and tours full time as well as enjoying hunting, fishing and boating near his home on Vancouver Island.
