Originally published in 1956, this book is a memoir by Danish explorer Peter Freuchen, a close friend and travel companion of Arctic legend Knud Rasmussen, and ended up living in Greenland for fifteen years, 800 miles from the North Pole—adopting the native ways of life, marrying an Inuit woman, and having two children along the way.

Arctic Adventure is filled with tales of seal and polar bear hunts, enduring starvation, encountering people who had resorted to cannibalism, and the stirring experience of seeing the sun again after three months of winter darkness.

Rich in human saga, Freuchen’s warmth, wit, and literary talent make this recollection of real-life adventure stories a stand-out.

“Except for Richard E. Byrd, and despite his foreign beginnings, Freuchen was perhaps better known to more people in the United States than any other explorer of our time.”—Evelyn Stefansson, The New York Times

“[A] formidable and fascinating man”—Harriet Baker, AnOther

Richly illustrated throughout with maps and black-and-white photographs.
