A striking novel based on the harrowing true story of Minik, an Eskimo boy who is seized from his tribe in 1897 Greenland by famed explorer Robert Peary, along with five other Eskimos, to be "presented" to the American Museum of Natural History.
"[A] tale of hard-won resilience and hope rather than annihilation, and the darkness is counterbalanced with human goodness and touches of quiet humor."
From the Publisher
