Douglas Earl Wilkinson (bornOctober 26, 1919 in Toronto - d. 2008.) The author's account of a year spe nt among the native people of northern Baffin Island. ""More and more you are getting to be like an Eskimo, and like my son," said Idlouk, chief man of the Aulatseevikmiut, to his friend Doug Wilkinson. "There are not many white men who live with the Eskimos as you are doing. When you go back to your land, I will write a note for you. It will be to the big chief of all thewhite men who come to our land on the boat in the summer." [...] Kingmik i s Doug Wilkinson's Eskimo name. How he came by it the reader will learn in this book. [...] For more than a year Mr. Wilkinson lived at Aulatseevik innorth Baffin, as an Eskimo, a member of ldlouk's family group, with no res ources available to him that were not available to the Eskimos. What he hasto say about his life as an Eskimo is the theme of Land of the Long Day. A s to the veracity of Mr. Wilkinson's story Idlouk is the best authority. Asto its interest, it is the publishers' belief that a more heart-warming ad venture story will not be published for many a year to come. " from the dj.Name, else vg in slightly chipped dj. 30.00
