Seventeen-year-old David Jansson moves to an isolated fur-trading post at Gjoa Haven to live with his father, Per Jansson, manager for the Hudson’s Bay Company. David hasn't seen his dad for... More > five years, and the hot-tempered man he finds is not the gentle father he remembers—he has become a domineering, abusive alcoholic. A loving reunion between the two seems unlikely as father and son desire the same girl; the Inuit shaman ignores local customs and chooses the white youth for his apprentice; and Per hides a chilling family secret behind a bottle of rum. To escape an intolerable situation in a land where escape is nearly impossible, David stubbornly risks his life by underestimating the weather ... and his own heart. A young-adult coming-of-age novel with paranormal overtones, Drum Dance is set in Canada’s central Arctic in the late 1930s, in the same location where explorers froze to death searching for the Northwest Passage.
