The book's starting point
In the early 1900s, Northeast Greenland had a scattered population of very special casting: Danish and Norwegian hunters, who settled on the coast many miles to the nearest neighbor. They brought supplies for a couple of years as well as a good deal of courage and endurance. The purpose was to collect fox and polar bear skins that could be sold in Europe and secure the future at home. Often it took years to stay in Northeast Greenland. The book tells the story of the stations where hunters, scientists, and sledge patrols wintered, and gives an impression of the many personalities that drew on life. The book is based on decades of research in the archives, the hunters and in North-East Greenland.
