About this book

Portrait of one of the last great unstudied wildernesses of the northern hemisphere, once the home of the Inuit tribe. Roy documents their winter houses, summer tent rings, graves and strange stone mosaics. He also records the remnants of the life of a small band of Norwegian and Danish hunters who during the early twentieth century travelled in these lonely fjords on dog-sledges.
