The Chukchi Bible free pdf The stories compose both a moving history of the Chukchi people who inhabit the shores of the Bering Sea and a beautiful cautionary tale, rife with conflict, human drama and humour. Introduces fantastic characters: Nau, the mother of the human race- Rau, her half-whale husband- and finally, the dark spirit Armagirgin, who attempts to destroy nature's harmony by pitting the two against each other. The Chukchi Bible moves through Arctic tundra, sea, sky and beyond, introducing readers to an extraordinary mythology and resilient people, in hauntingly poetic prose.

About Yuri Rytkheu

Yuri Rytkheu was born in Uelen, a village in the Chukotka region of Siberia. He sailed the Bering Sea, worked on Arctic geological expeditions, and hunted in Arctic waters, in addition to writing over a dozen novels and collections of stories. His novel A Dream in Polar Fog was a Kiriyama Pacific Rim Prize Notable Book in 2006. In the late 1950s, Rytkheu emerged not only as a great literary talent, but as the unique voice of a small national minority - the Chukchi people, a shrinking community residing in one of the most majestic and inhospitable environments on earth. Ilona Yazhbin Chavasse translated Rytkheu's novel A Dream in Polar Fog. Born in the former Soviet Union, she now lives in London with her husband and daughter.
