"You must make your journey through the snow to search for him. Always remember that a man's spirit, where it burns with love, is more powerful than the wind and stronger than the ice."
Alex travels to the Arctic, with her explorer father, to return Siku, a little white fox, to its natural habitat. There she makes friends with Canny, a young Inuit boy, whose own father has disappeared and is believed to be dead. Through Canny, Alex learns about Inuit life and customs – both old and new – and meets his grandfather, the Shaman or wise man. When the two children discover something that links Siku with Canny's missing father, the Shaman tells Canny that he must go and search for him. Together, Canny, Alex, her father and Siku set out on the journey of a lifetime…one that will change all their lives, forever.
