reviewed on + 102 more book reviews


A sad but true story of a small Eskimo boy who lost his way. I enjoyed it very much. There is a lot about Eskimo culture and I was surprised to find out that the Arctic Explorer, Robert Peary, was not the hero that the news of the time claimed him to be. Alas, as with so many heroes, on close inspection they have feet of clay. This is a good book that keeps you enthralled to the end. The author is to be commended for the research he did to put this story together.
