Sinopsis: Book by Moody, Joseph P.

From Booklist: Moody, his wife, and their young daughter spent nearly four years (1946^-50) in and around Chesterfield on Hudson Bay's northwest shore. Just out of medical school, Moody became responsible for 2,000 people scattered over 600,000 square miles. His enjoyable and thought-provoking story describes his growth as a physician, his improving understanding of and relationship with both Eskimo and white patients, and the often astonishing, sometimes nearly fatal events in his doctoring and travels. He makes us see and feel life just below the arctic circle: the sudden disappearance of the clouds of mosquitoes that signals the need to get ready for winter; the mind-numbing, blasting cold and wind; the careful construction of an igloo; and the trust and cooperation on which all those living amid snow, ice, rocks, and water vitally depend. Moody sees the Inuit as "a people perfectly adjusted to their environment" and shows how the diseases, guns, alcohol, and other evils brought to them by whites almost destroyed their way of life. William Beatty

A vast land of wilderness and adventure that tested the bravery and survival instincts of an ancient culture is now covered by a modern communication web connecting the distant wastelands with the modern world. But at what expense? This revealing book explores this question in an amazing real~life tale of survival and suspense. The author, Joseph P. Moody, M.D., a young doctor stationed in the East Arctic in the late 1940s, chronicles his adventures as the only doctor to over 2,000 mostly Eskimo patients. His patients were spread over 600,000 square miles of dangerous Arctic landscape. Dr. Moody witnessed the amazing beauty of a land and people whose lives have been irreversibly changed in recent decades. "I saw at once an exceptional way of life, and sensed that it was about to change forever," says Moody. "The Ancient East Arctic of thousands of years suddenly was experiencing cataclysmic changes propelling it into the modern world in a few short years. These people had to literally make the transition from the stone age to that of nuclear electronics in just a few decades." Before modern technology, he had to fight the elements to get to his patients ~ trips that could take anywhere from days to weeks. Trusting his Eskimo guide and dog team, or making dangerous mercy flights on small aircraft. Dr. Moody fought diseases such as polio and tuberculosis, as well as frostbite, gangrene, and the creeping insanity that seemed to plague white explorers unaccustomed to the isolation and darkness of an Arctic winter. But the land of danger and inescapable beauty left its mark on him. After three years of medical service he returned again and again as a prospector and filmmaker. The dangers of the Arctic were only too real for Moody, who survived near~death disasters such as drifting ice floes, burning planes, plus direct attacks by walruses and polar bears. His vivid narrative style brings to life each dramatic experience. Nº de ref. de la librería 8211202
