Stefansson, Vilhjalmur: Hunters of the Great North (Illustrated). v1. 31 Oct 2012
Mr. Stefansson tells here of how he became an explorer and of his first trip into the Arctic. He gives all the details that every one wants to know: how he learned to build a snow house and to be comfortable in one; how he learned to hunt seals and caribou and to travel by land and sea and to live in comfort; what the Eskimos are like and how they live; and just what sort of a place the “Great North” is. This is a book for the young of all ages in whom there is alive the love of pushing into the unknown. Written after eleven years of exploration, this is a ripened account of early adventures informed by later experiences.
