Peter Freuchen's Book of the Eskimos
By: Peter Freuchen
Genre: Guide, Biography
Description: Peter Freuchen (1886-1957) was a Dane who set up a trading post in Greenland in 1910. He spent 50 years among the Inuit, and knew them when they still lived in their traditional Stone Age manner. He married an Inuit woman and had two children. Freuchen’s Book of the Eskimos describes how these people lived, and provides us with a window into a world far different from our own.
