ESKIMO YEAR by George M. Sutton


Email this review


Might catch the audience that enjoyed ARCTIC VILLAGE, but lacks the ""escape reading"" quality for that market, and belongs with travel and mild adventure. The account of a year -- August 1929 to August 1930 -- spent on the island of Southampton, north of Hudson Bay, spent by a white man in a community consisting of five whites and one hundred and fifty natives, studying the flora and the fauna and the human beings, going native in habits and accepting discomforts, learning to love and understand the Eskimo.
