STEFANSHON: Prophet of the North

Email this review


Any boy (or girl) with a sense of adventure and a glimmer of interest in Arctic exploration will find this absorbing biography of an American explorer of Icelandic inheritance stimulating and exciting reading. Early days on the Dakota prairies, training for the career he chose, exploration undertaken the hard way- and the scientific approach to problems of peoples and the potentialities of the unknown north -- told with imagination, understanding, and a keen sense of story value.
