GREENLAND LIES NORTH by William S. Carlson


Email this review


A two man expedition to northern Greenland to study winter air currents at a new station, in the raison d'etre for this book on near-Arctic life. The trip from North Sydney, in August, the weather, storms, bergs, whales, stops en route, the final landing, establishment of their base, the work, living, Eskimos, their life trips further north, sledge driving, guests, various crises to be met, all this and more fills this personal record with plenty of incident, description and keen observation. Ranks up well with other good books on the north, and those who are fascinated by the subject will find it to their taste.
