One of the great adventurers and story tellers. 3 septembre 2002
Par Sysmg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Unlike many European adventurers who forced their vision upon the natives, Peter Freuchen adopted their ways. He was quite a remarkable individual. His life jumped from one life changing adventure to another. This book covers his life in the Artic, which was remarkable. Later in his life, he wrote a book which covers this material and other adventures (including Alaska, the Soviet Union) called 'Vagrant Viking'. I highly recommend that book too.
Also unlike many adventurers (such as Ernest Shackleton) Freuchen wrote incredibly well. His insights into different cultures and people and his writing style are exceptional. One passage that stood out in this book had to do with him finding out that he was going to be a father: "My whole life was changed, given impulse and purpose. Before the arrival of children a man is seldom aware of the need for them. Afterward, he can scarcely credit life as holding any interest without them." I highly recommend this book, which will be reprinted in November 2002.

Incredible story of exploring Greenland... great writer. 6 décembre 1997
Par kwigkid@aol.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Fruechen was an early Greenland explorer and wrote a brilliant chronical of his adventures. Combines vivid descriptions of the hardship, landscape and eskimos with a sharp sense of humor. Freuchen, in my opinion, is the Michael Jordan of story tellers. If I had only one book in the world to keep, this would be it.

A must read 10 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
My grand father introduced me to this book and Jim Corbett's writing. Any one who ever longed to travel should read Freuchen and Corbett. Honestly written, with detail, wisdom, and the appreciation of irony that makes life in hardship enjoyable. I read it every fall when cold weather sets in. I agree with the previous reviewer. If you only read one book this year, make it Arctic Adventure.

Magnificent 23 novembre 1997

This book should get an 11 and be read by every adventurer intheuniverse. It is the inspirational story of Freuchens life adventuring in and around Greenland at the turn of the century.....an amazing life, a remarkable man, a fantastic book. If you plan to read only one book in your life forget about Dosteovsky, Proust, and Shakespeare, and read this. I liked it.

Great Stories and Interesting Insights into Eskimo Culture 1 février 2013
Par Timothy Weeks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book was a treat. It immediately sucked me in from the first pages, where the author is struggling to find something to eat on the icy tundra. And it held my interest until the end (well, there were a couple very brief passages toward the end when he returns to Denmark, that I skimmed a bit).

The book works both because the stories are great (in the North Pole region, even a "little jaunt" is dangerous since conditions are so harsh and food is so scare) and it is fascinating to see Eskimo culture up close. How people organize themselves under such difficult conditions is revealing. The Eskimos are both warm and generous and--to our modern eyes at least--at other times harsh. There are no police or court systems, so if say one bloke consistently ridicules another for being a bachelor, and that bachelor, has enough of the teasing and kills the teaser and starts living with his wife, there is no one official to object. In this case, the community decided it was okay and let it stand. Yet, if either of the two had food and the other didn't, it would have been unacceptable not to share it. Also, wife sharing was not just a legend. So I highly recommend this.
