The Canine Kalevala
(Koirien Kalevala)


The canine national epic, a thrilling adventure, an heroic in the true Kunnas’ style.

Long, long ago, when the world was still young, there dwelt in the far-off land of Kalevala a tribe of wild and woolly dogs. Their neighbor in the gloomy north was a pack of mean and wicked wolves. Between them lived a small but tough clan of cats. The dogs and wolves vied for sovereignty of the forests, and this often gave rise to some pretty fierce squabbles.
