    This short book is written as a meditative journal of the author s sailboat trip to Greenland in 1930, which ended in a shipwreck I appreciated his poetic impressions of the wild Greenland shores, the wonder of its flower fields and fjords, his experience of the Northern Lights, and his limited intersections with the Native Greenlanders Sometime the latter was comic, as he usually had to resort to gestures to communicate Unfortunately, he was a bit of a lech in lusting after their women, and This short book is written as a meditative journal of the author s sailboat trip to Greenland in 1930, which ended in a shipwreck I appreciated his poetic impressions of the wild Greenland shores, the wonder of its flower fields and fjords, his experience of the Northern Lights, and his limited...

    The N by E first edition cover, from 1930, unabashedly states Rockwell Kent was created to demonstrate that Nature did not, after Leonardo da Vinci, forget how to produce a man who could do everything superbly The quote reflects not only thesensationalist era in which the book was written, but also Kent s old school male ego And contrary to the quote he is not the best author, both starting off too slowly and giving away the ending at the beginning Yet, his extreme physical robustness The N by E first edition cover, from 1930, unabashedly states Rockwell Kent was created to demonstrate that Nature did not, after Leonardo da Vinci, forget how to produce a man who could do everything superbly The quote reflects not only thesensationalist era in which the book was written, but also Kent s old school male ego And contrary to the quote he is not the best author, both starting off too slowly and giving away the ending at the beginning Yet, his extreme physical robustness and strength of character make him an admirable character, anxious to join a risky venture, motivated to study and take on navigational duties, and ultimately showing the courage and stamina to save the explorers when the expedition fails His dramatic woodcut prints enhance every chapter with their stren...
