Summary
"While Amundsen, Franklin, and Peary were first to explore the furthest geographical reaches of the Polar North, Knud Rasmussen was the first to explore its culture and its soul. Part Danish, part Inuit, the famed explorer anthropologist made an epic three-year journey by dog sled from Greenland to Alaska recording not only the landscapes but also the songs and stories of the Eskimo people ... There has been no full-scale biography of Rasmussen in English, and Stephen Bown's ... life of Roald Amundsen [gives him the experience] to record the great journeys and fascinating life of the Inuit from Greenland through the Northwest Passage to Alaska"--
