In this story, we meet two Inuit children and their family during the winter season. Quara and Kunuk help their grandparents to prepare for the group's departure for the summer campsite.

Gérard Frischeteau's computer graphics convey many visual details that complement the documentary style of this book. The Travel Diary section provides useful information on Inuit dwellings, boats, tools, hunting, and diet. The book retells the legend of the « woman that changed into a she-wolf » translated from the Inuktitut. The Safari Histoire series leads us on a discovery of cultures and traditions the world over.
