Reseña del editor:

This extraordinary classic has been variously acclaimed as one of the great books of adventure, travel, anthropology, and spiritual awakening. In 1938 and 1939, a French nobleman spent fifteen months living among the Inuit people of the Arctic. He was 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. Indeed, most Europeans would be overwhelmed merely by the smells Poncins encountered in the igloos. But as de Poncins's odyssey continues, he is transformed from Kabloona, the White Man, an uncomprehending outsider, to someone who finds himself living, for a few short months, as Inuk: a man, preeminently. He opens his eyes to the world around him, a harsh but beautiful world unlike any other, and allows himself to be fully immersed in its culture.

Biografía del autor:

Gontran de Poncins was a restless French aristocrat who gave up careers as an artist and a businessman to become a freelance journalist. After traveling the world, he returned to wartime France in 1940 and died in 1962. He is the author of Kabloona, The Ghost Voyage Out of Eskimo Land, and From a Chinese City: In the Heart of Peacetime Vietnam.
