A translation of Muitalus sámiid birra, based on the Sámi original, by Johan Turi.
Johan Turi was born in the north Norwegian settlement of Guovdageaidnu in the year 1854. His family resettled as a member of a reindeer herding collective in northern Sweden in the 1870’s which led to his subsequent life as a wolf hunter and trapper. Turi talks of the Sami life and culture in prose that evokes strong imagery, detailing the seasons, animals, medicines, migrations, folktales and more, of this inspiring but arduous life.
