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
