Interesting true story of Amundsen and his men in the North West Passage, living through a couple of winters, and their life with the Eskimo, and daily living. Looking forward to Part 2! Well read. Thank you.

(4.5 stars)

good reading of an account of arctic exploration. the story is direct and the observations of eskimo culture are interesting if not problematic in the modern view. looking forward to part 2
