Detailed Product Description
New York, Putnam’s, 1958, 1st edition. 438 pp, b/w illustrations, maps, mapped end papers. Teal cloth hardcover with white text and decoration and dust jacket. Jacket has very small chips along top edge. Book is fine. Near Fine.

Peter Freuchen was a Danish explorer who spent many years living among the eskimos. In fact he married a female eskimo, and the names of their children were a boy named Mequsaq Avataq Igimaqssusuktoranguapaluk and a girl named Pipaluk Jette Tukuminguaq Kasaluk Palika Hager. I had to put that in!

In 1956 he was a contestant on the American TV quiz show the $64,000 question, and won the top prize of $64,000 in the category "The Seven Seas." I remember watching him, I was 12 years old, and it was just one more little push that put me in the job I have today, selling books on the Arctic and Antarctic, and Mountaineering. 

The Arctic Year is Danish Arctic explorer Peter Freuchen and Danish ornithologist Finn Salomonsen's "general impression of arctic nature, its boundaries, its inhabitants and its history." Specifically, the authors provide a month by month account of the natural landscapes and ecosystems of the Arctic, based on their extensive experience in Greenland and other regions of the Far North. The text is illustrated throughout with maps and drawings executed by Petersen under Salomonsen's direction.
