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.
From the Publisher:
Provides the story of a young Eskimo boy named Minik who, after being brought from his home in Greenland to New York City in 1897 by explorer Robert Peary, was forced to deal with the death of his father, the separation from his family, and the lack of everything familiar to him during the next twelve years of his young life.
