Read full description of the books:
Once known as Eskimos, the Inupiat people of Alaska and Canada have a place in our American myth. The Nathan Active series of mysteries explore these First Nations Americans who are synonymous with toughness and endurance. These traits are present both physically and psychologically in this fast paced novel by Stan Jones. The picture that emerges is not one of brash disregard for others but rather an indomitable perseverance.
The characters, both Inupiat and white, ring true because they are drawn as human beings first, unique in their success adapting to their environment in a way that demands a high level of mental fortitude. One of the many joys in reading this book is how Jones conveys that common trait of endurance in the many different characters of the novel.
Elevating Shaman Pass to 5 stars is how Jones weaves in the story of a fascinating historical figure, Maniilaq (worth googling!) an Inupiaq social reformer who shook things up in the 1800's. Jones' characters are not stuck in the past and yet the past looms large as it does in all cultures that have undergone rapid changes.
Having all these interesting elements underlie a page-turning mystery makes this book a great read.
