Torkel Rasmussem
Áigin's Arctic Adventures

Áhtoš-Ánde lives in the far north of Arctic Europe, where the sun shines all night during summer and disappears for two months in the winter. He is a Sámi noaidi, or shaman, who can shape-shift into a raven. He invites a twelve-year-old boy named Áigin to follow him. They fly above snow-covered mountains and follow steep valleys out to the Sacred Cove on the Arctic Ocean.

Áigin’s Arctic Adventures is a novel for children and youth. We get to follow Áigin on an exciting journey to a secret place, full of magical adventures and lessons about the old Sámi ways.
