Ballantyne, R. M: Ungava. V1. 8 Oct 2010

R. M. Ballantyne (24 April 1825 – 8 February 1894) was a Scottish juvenile fiction writer.
Born Robert Michael Ballantyne in Edinburgh, he was part of a famous family of printers and publishers. At the age of 16 he went to Canada and was six years in the service of the Hudson's Bay Company. He returned to Scotland in 1847, and published his first book the following year, Hudson's Bay: or, Life in the Wilds of North America. For some time he was employed by Messrs Constable, the publishers, but in 1856 he gave up business for the profession of literature, and began the series of adventure stories for the young with which his name is popularly associated.

One of the first accounts of life in the far north, pre-dating Jack London by nearly half a century. Ballantyne's Ungava is a terrifying, illuminating tale, based on real events as the first trading post in the Land of the Esquimaux is established on Ungava Bay. The first Europeans that far north encounter both Native Americans and Esquimaux-with often grisly and inexplicable result-but therein lies its utter truth unvarnished and fascinating, even when painful.
