 Arctic Thunder

Mike Watson's team has just won the Alberta Bantam Provincial Lacrosse Championships. The euphoria of victory and plans for next season are short-lived when Mike's father, a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, is transferred to Inuvik, Northwest Territories. The transition to life inside the Arctic Circle is a tough one. With temperatures of -30 Celsius, a hulking monster named Joseph Kiktorak threatening him at every turn, and not a lacrosse ball in sight, Mike's resentment at moving north escalates. As his friendships with local youth develop, Mike is introduced to the amazing spectacle and athleticism of traditional "Arctic Sports." When his father witnesses the natural talent of Mike's new friends, the idea of an Inuvik lacrosse team is born! With hearts full of desire, the motley group of athletes heads south to participate in the Baggataway Lacrosse Tournament, and to face Mike's former team, the Rams.

Napachee is tired of Sachs Harbour in the Northwest Territories.  He is tired of the traditional Inuit hunt, of never being able to do the things he sees on TV, and of fighting with his father, who shuns rifles for harpoons, snowmobiles for dog sleds, and tents for igloos.  When two men from the Edmonton zoo fly in to capture a polar bear cub, Napachee spies his chance at a trip to the big city, but soon discovers that life there is not what he had expected.
