After spending 1950-51 with an isolated group of Eskimos in northern Greenland, sharing their life on the very edge of survival .

Jean Malaurie, Adrienne Foulke (Translator). In 1950, Malaurie, a French her, spent a year living with the most northern people on Earth - the Inughuit - while he mapped the northern reaches of Greenland and recorded their disappearing lifestyle. From hunting techniques and remarkable ice sea crossings to Canada, to consensual partner swapping to stay sane through the interminably long, dark winters, it is the irrepressible personalities of the Eskimos that really shine in this memorable book.

I didn't get this book at all! Unfortunately, among all the books with the same name, it was the only one which could be delivered to Russia... As a result - I don't have this book... :-( It is very pity!

Well I knew I was on a Nuclear Airbase and I remember the smell in the air when the escomos came to the base to get things. I never knew they lived that bad. On Dundus mountain was the King barried I was told but even in the book it stated nothing about that except the two clains killed each other over an argument. Also the weather was correct since I was in a phase which the temperature was -66 F below and the winds were 165 mph. It took down the the 160 foot transmitting tower and pushed a truck and a F102A out into the bay. Also we had a chopper crash into the bay when taking a Escomo to the hospital and all died due to the cold water. This was in 1959. So I can say that was good reading and I survied with a 20 degree lean and was entered into the blue nosed club and had a 10 foot stare when I got back to the States for a while and my hair shedded for a while as well. Capt USAF retired.

Although the primary objectives of Malaurie's work were cartographic and geological in nature, he became, by default, a primary voice in describing the Thule culture by recounting his personal experiences and lifestyle during the expedition. Surely, ethnography can never be a truly objective effort, but Malaurie seems to appreciate this and relates cultural information through an admitted cultural filter. Rather than stifle his own reactions in his writing, Malaurie has adequately described, with sensitivity, his personal paradigm shift as well as that of the culture he is inevitably impacting by his very presence. It is inevitable that in any ethnographic description it will be found that something is amiss, lacking, due to the inevitable loss of information that occurs whenever information is transferred across cultural and linguistic lines. This work is one of the few that I have read that treats cultural interaction and exchange with dignity on behalf of the observed and the one observing. And, after all, these lines of distinction regarding observer and the observed shift and change radically during such a period of cultural interaction. Malaurie wonderfully describes this process.
