In 1938 and 1939, a French nobleman spent fifteen months living among the Inuit

sleeping with each others' wives, ignoring schedules, and helping themselves to his
possessions. But as de Poncins's odyssey continues, he is transformed from
Kabloona, The White Man, an uncomprehending outsider, to someone who finds
himself living, for a few short months, as Inuk: a man, preeminently.
