"A scientific as well as literary masterpiece."
Saturday Review

"No other book about the Far North is written with so much sympathy,
vividness, and dramatic imagination."New Yorker

"Kabloona is much more than a beautifully illuminating description of
Eskimo life. It is a highly significant essay, skeptical, humorous, and often
profound."Times Literary Supplement

This extraordinary classic has been variously acclaimed as one of the great books
of adventure, travel, anthropology, and spiritual awakening.

In 1938 and 1939, a French nobleman spent fifteen months living among the Inuit
people of the Arctic. He is at first appalled by their way of life: eating rotten raw fish,
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.

Grover Gardner, named one of the "Best Voices of the Century" by AudioFile magazine, has recorded more than five hundred audiobooks. He is the recipient of more than thirteen Earphones Awards as well as an Audie Award. In addition to narrating, he has an active career as an actor and stage director. He lives in Washington, D.C.
