9780720713114: Eskimo Diary

A unique record of life in the far north, Eskimo Diary is the compelling story of a man's coming of age in the late fifties and early sixties, acquiring the skills needed to survive in a cold and unyielding land. As Thomas Frederiksen relates how he learned to fish for flounder and cod and hunt for reindeer, whales and seals, he weaves into his narrative tales of his forefathers and legends recollected from more ancient days in Greenland. In seventy-five colour paintings of beguiling simplicity, the author depicts the stark vista seen from ice packs and floes, the fog shrouded life aboard hunting ships, and the subtle changes of colour that mark a harsh landscapes seasons.
