My Arctic Journal: A Year among Ice-Fields and Eskimos
Wife of self-proclaimed North Pole discoverer Robert Edwin Peary, Josephine Peary was the first white woman to take part in an Artic exploration. Unavailable for nearly a century, this book is her account of Peary's 1891-92 expedition, of her adventurous experiences and cultural encounters, and of her extraordinary treks across the world's upper reaches. This rare, firsthand account--the only Arctic memoir composed by a woman--provides an accurate, elaborate picture of Arctic geography and Inuit culture.
