The book contains five tales of myth, adventure, and humour told at the top of the world, written and drawn by Inuit and northern Canadian comic creators. 

Stories include On Waiting, award-winning Inuit author Michael Kusugak (Baseball Bats for Christmas, The Shaman) and landscape artist Susan Thurston Shirley's tale of a poignant and poetic episode from his early life at the edge of the world. Jose Kusugak and Germaine Arnaktauyok recount one of many magical adventures of Kiviuq, the ‘first man’ of Inuit legend in Kiviuq vs Big Bee. Winnipeg writer, Nicholas Burns, presents three stories. Blizzard House, with Winnipeg artist George Freeman, a science fiction adventure about a teenage couple trapped between futuristic visions of the arctic that are doing battle around them; The Great Slo-Pitch Massacre a humourous tale of young love gone wrong during a municipal slo-pitch tournament (Yes, slo-pitch is played in the Arctic); and Film Nord, a farcical detective story starring an Inuktitut RCMP officer. When someone is murdered on an Arctic movie set, Constable Puqittuq and her loyal dog must solve the bizarre crime.
