KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the life story of an Eskimo woman, Anauta, a native of the Baffin Islands. Intimate glimpses of old Eskimo customs, clothes, houses, social habits arranged marriages, tabus, ceremonials, points of view. The main facts of her own life, from childhood to marriage -- a happy one -- and parenthood. Then her husband is drowned, she comes to the states and marries an American, for convenience -- but the marriage is a failure. Domesticity, American style, is beyond her, cooking a mystery. Fascinating account of a courageous woman's life. Of particular interest to the Grenfell audience.
