Descripción de editorial
This vintage book contains the fascinating and insightful story of a Frenchman called Louis Romanet who lived with a tribe of Eskimos in the Arctic for many years. It is a dramatic true story of friendship and a deeply emotional brotherly tie between two men, Kabluk, the white man, and Akpek, the Eskimo chief. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in Eskimo culture, and it would make for a fantastic addition to any collection. Contents include: "In Every Latitude there is a Story-teller", " Parisian Meets a Patriarch of the North", "Drifting Toward the Aurora Borealis", "Riding the Tempest with Utik and the 'White Man'", "I Was a Frenchman. I Became an Eskimo", "They Offer me Norrak, the Blonde Girl of the Tribe", "A Year Alone on Loon Island", "Ai'vuk the Walrus", "The Attack of the Kayaks", et cetera. Lowell Jackson Thomas (1892 - 1981) was an American broadcaster, writer, and traveller. He is best known for making the 1962 film "Lawrence of Arabia" famous. Other notable works by this author include: This Side of Hell (1932) and Born to Raise Hell (1933). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with its original artwork and text.
