“It was a different crow, but the same crow, you understand? Because there is only one Crow. God made them all black and identical-looking because there is no reason for them to be different birds. That’s why you can never kill a crow, because it lives forever. Crow never dies!” (James Itsi)
For over 50,000 years, the Great Hunt has shaped human existence, creating a vital spiritual reality where people, animals, and the land share intimate bonds. Author Larry Frolick takes the listener deep into one of the last refuges of hunting societies: Canada’s far north. Based on his experiences travelling with First Nations Elders in remote communities across the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut, this vivid narrative combines accounts of daily life, unpublished archival records, First Nations' stories and Traditional Knowledge with personal observation to illuminate the northern wilderness, its people, and the complex relationships that exist among them.

The writing style invokes Ansel Adam's photos where every detail is picked out yet the whole of monumental nature is depicted. One contrasts it to flat smooth features of the sensory impoverished urban life we inhabit today.
The book goes deep in a spirituality that is lost to southerners but one is left longing to recover.
Frolick has immersed himself in the life of the aboriginal hunters accompanying them on their sojourns. Particularly enjoyable is the description of caribou hunting, and his close shaves with polar bears. Even the seemingly humble berry picking is a joy to read. The preternatural crows of the book title haunt the reader.
This should be read by anybody to satisfy their curiousity about the incredibly vast expanse that is the North and the people who inhabit it. Indeed it should be on every school's reading list. Crow Never Dies does honour to the north like no other author has done before. It makes a fascinating read.
