<> The world of Greenlandic mythology is inhabited by a motley crew of dangerous, cheeky, and fantastical beings that have played a vital role in Inuit beliefs and stories throughout the ages. The Bestiarium brings together Greenlandic history, myth, and culture. It is a collection of what is generally known about these diverse beings, spirits, and animals, their stories and descriptions are paired with illustrations by various Greenlandic illustrators. A brief history of Greenland and the shaman tradition launches the reader into the ancient world of Greenland and how myth and legend told through generations mold and depict a place that was dark and grim, but also mischievous and lively. Now available in North America, this edition of the book features a publisher introduction by Neil Christopher and a re-translated and edited chapter on "Shamans, witches, and witchcraft" by Robin Fenrir Mansa Hillestrøm. Illustrations by contemporary Greenlandic and Nordic artists transport the mythological beings into the 21st Century.
