The White Dawn: An Eskimo Saga by James Houston

The White Dawn by James Houston is a novel I read for my history of the twentieth century world class. This book is about an Inuit community and what happens when three whalers get lost and an Inuit community takes them in. This book is told from the perspective of one of the Inuit, which makes the whalers the foreigner’s, which is a different take then most books give. This book is a slow read but really gives insight into Inuit way of life. I wouldn’t really recommend this book unless you are interested in learning about Inuit life.
