Eskimo Life

Eskimo Life - Fridtjof Nansen I didn't finish the book -- needed to be returned to the library, other more pressing things to read at the time. But it was worth dipping into.Written in the 1880's by a Norwegian explorer, it details the perspective of a European male encountering the Eskimo way of life in Greenland. Nansen writes like an anthropologist. The Eskimo way of life certainly reads as fairly happy and seemingly ecologically sound from what I read. The style of writing reads some archaically, so while charming me at times, it also prevented me from reading more, or reading quickly. The library copy that I read had beautiful black and white illustrations and plates in it.
