Detailed Product Description
New York, Reynal, Hitchcock Inc., 1941. 339 pp, b/w and color illustrations by the author, 32 pp of b/w photos. Blue and beige cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Near Fine to Fine.

French adventurer Gontran de Poncins' classic account of his solo unsupported journey in the Canadian Arctic. Written in collaboration with Lewis Galantiere, Gontran de Poncins' Kabloona recounts the French aristocrat's journey in the Canadian Arctic, where he lived with the Inuit for nearly 15 months between 1938 and 1939. Bored with the business world, curiosity drew de Poncins to exotic areas throughout the world; his unique technique in relaying his observations of the cultures he discovered was not scientific, but provided stylized personal points of view and descriptions. Initially describing the Inuit way of life as primitive and inferior, de Poncins soon experienced a deep spiritual awakening after undergoing weeks of hardship in the Arctic and became so well-adapted to the lifestyle he was essentially adopted by the Inuit.
