Kabloona: Among the Inuit
January 2, 1941
In this classic of adventure, travel, anthropology, and spiritual awakening, de Poncins is a French nobleman who spent fifteen months in 1938 and 1939 living among the Inuit people of the Arctic. He is at first appalled by their way of life: eating rotten raw fish, sleeping with each others' wives, ignoring schedules, and helping themselves to his possessions. But as his odyssey continues, he is transformed from an uncomprehending outsider to someone who finds himself living as Inuk: a man, preeminently.
