The Ivory Caribou

Length: 348 pages


Is it a love story? Or is it an adventure story? Or is it a commentary on the tragedy of war? It is all of these, and more. Caroline McCullagh weaves a thrilling and dynamic story around Anne O’Malley’s genealogical search for the story of her late husband’s father that takes her to the far North of Canada to find new relatives among the Inuit culture, to Europe behind the lines in World War I, and back to the small Inuit village where she finds romance. The Ivory Caribou won Best Unpublished Novel in the San Diego Book Awards.

In The Ivory Caribou, Caroline McCullagh has created an enduring love story between a sixty-year-old woman and a man of unusual ethnicity. The author's real love, though, is of anthropology, history, and language. She is a luminous storyteller and wordsmith of the highest order.
Richard Lederer, author of Anguished English and Amazing Words

I haven’t had this much fun reading prose in a while. The story moves well, the characters are deftly drawn and the plots are so easily interwoven you won’t believe your mind.
