""This is a sympathetic, non-moralizing, human picture of modern Eskimo life Stone Age people...plunging into our civilization"". The author, a scientist and medical pioneer, lived and worked among Eskimo tribes in remote villages for several years during the 1950's. Their investigations convinced them that the Eskimos have no built-in endowments that enable them to get along in the Arctic, but that they have completely adjusted to their environment. They also conclude that though the white man has disrupted their ancient ways, it does not help to say that the Eskimo ought to be isolated, for they are too vigorous to become museum ieces. Meticulous and informed detail.
