KIRKUS REVIEW

Peter Freuchen, a spirited man who found the Arctic wildernesses suited to his taste amassed more information about the Eskimo mode of life than anyone else of his generation. His book is virtually an encyclopedia including countless comical stories, and a host of fascinating recollections. Most of these vignettes are new and not found elsewhere, thus the student of the Eskimo should find a storehouse of enlightenment here.
