Sedna: Goddess of the Sea is an explanatory tale; a unique synthesis of two variations of the ancient Inuit legend of how sea animals came to be. Sedna was a beautiful young woman and many young men asked to marry her, but she rejected every one. Sedna's wicked uncle convinces her father that she must marry the next suitor, but when she rejected him as well, her uncle left Sedna and her dog on an island. Sedna returned for revenge after the uncle killed the dog, but then a spirit bird lured Sedna away. When her father arrived to save her, the angry spirit bird caused the sea to boil and Ootuk throws Sedna overboard. When she tries to climb back into the kayak, he stabs her hands. From her blood, according to legend, come the warm blooded animals of the sea, who will feed the hungry Eskimos for all time. The 64 pages book contains 30 symbolic and realistic black and white illustrations with visual elements of the Inuit culture. Following the text are three explanatory notes about Sedna in a broader popular culture context. There is also a resource bibliography, a pronunciation guide, and a short vocabulary list for young readers.

Sedna is considered a vengeful goddess and is worshipped and prayed to by Inuit hunters so that she release sea animals from the depths of her underworld for their hunt. As she provides animals for food in the harsh Arctic environment, Sedna is the most important Inuit deity. - Sedna was a giant, and daughter of the creator-god Anguta. Enraged by his daughter's drive to kill him and her mother, Anguta rows her out to sea and attempts to throw her from the side of his kayak.

The goddess stopped pacing and spoke earnestly to her. "But there is a way to make your human form permanent. The goddess stepped away from the water and walked back to the greenery that lined the sandy shore. Once surrounded in living plants, she turned and faced the ocean. You must find a man to love you and to accept with a full heart that you are a daughter of the sea, as well as that of the land.

This is the most elaborate version of the Sedna story that I have seen. It includes novel elements, such as an evil uncle, and a story knife which when wielded by Sedna, mysteriously draws pictures which foretell the future. The illustrations are simple, black cut-outs on a white space, but the interplay of positive and negative space reveals different images as the pictures are studied. They are apt representations of the austere, tough world in which the story takes place. The story is scary and gruesome in part, but like more familiar (e.g. Greek) myths also has a positive ending which explains aspects of the world experienced by the Inuit. This could be a book read in childhood that remains memorable in story and image throughout a person's life.
I wouldn't give this to a really young child, but it should be OK for one who is old enough for e.g. Hansel and Gretel. It might be an interesting choice for a budding marine biologist or astronomer (since Sedna is now a mini-planetary body in the Kuiper belt).

The tale of Sedna as depicted in this particular book was by far the most complete account of the inuit tale I have ever yet read....If the subject interests you, I thoroughly recommended it

Sedna: Goddess of the Sea

The most specialized book on Sedna, because all her story is in this book, and nothing is missing. If you really want to become a specialist or know her story better, then buy it. And for all ages. Nothing evasive on Inuit mythology, but just about Sedna. Really just curious? You will be satisfied for sure. You do not know all her life, so buy the book, it is not expensive. I recommend it!
