Therefore, this new edition.

Much more and new content - therefore also new subtitle

The new edition of NORDØSTGRØNLAND 1908-60 deals with the same themes as the original edition of 1994; but contains much more. It is a total of 592 pages - about 50% more pages than the 1994 edition. It contains over 1,100 images - almost three times as many photos as the original. The book is based on the same structure and content as the 1994 edition; but has been updated up to today (2018). The book also contains several new chapters and a whole lot of new information and details about each cabin, house and station from the hunting period, the people who have used them, and the work done over the past 25 years to preserve the historic buildings. In addition, it has received a revised register containing more than 2,500 reference words with references to cabins, people, places, vessels, expeditions, animal species and much more. All of this has led to the subtitle being changed to: "Fangstmandsperioden - og dens spor i dag".

The 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.
