    Book details


A laska, at its northernmost point and walled in by ice, lies an Eskimo settlement. It is a big one, for more than five hundred men with their women and children call it home. A mong the Eskimos the settlement is called Nuwuk, but in the white mans language its name is Point Barrow. A long the low, sandy foreshore, on a stretch of four or five miles, stands hut after hut, built of wood, made snug with turf: and outside each hut is a platform, raised high above the ground. On this all the household goods are stored: meat, blubber, skin-bladders full of oil, hides tanned and raw, clothes old and new, dog-harness, kayaks, sledges, spears, lances, weapons and tools of all sorts everything an Eskimo has use for is here, lashed together with stout sealskin thongs, safe from the furious winter storms, from being buried under the snow, but above all from the evil designs of the dogs.
