Collected and retold by
Collected in the late 1980s by author-ethnographer Lawrence Millman, these stories about the Labrador Innu trickster figure, Wolverine, have a distinctly modern quality. They depict a penis that can talk, the moon commuting from the earth to the sky, and farts that can literally kill. Wolverine himself loses a footrace with a giant boulder and gets stuck inside a bear’s skull as well as inside his own stomach. His adventures and misadventures indicate that not only is it okay to screw up, but there may even be a virtue to messing things up. After all, Wolverine survives an entire winter by mistaking his own ass for caribou jerky.
“At once hilarious and sympathetic!” wrote novelist Howard Mosher about the stories in this collection.
