Marie Ahnighito Peary was born in Northwest Greenland on September 12, 1893, to Arctic explorer Rear Admiral Robert E. Peary and his wife, Josephine Diebitsch Peary. Their daughter became known world-wide as the "Snow Baby," a name given to her by the Greenland natives who had never before seen a white baby. In 1909, when Marie was 16 years old, Admiral Peary became the first white man to lead a successful expedition to the North Pole.
When young Tooktoo fights off the wolves who attack another reindeer, he wins a place on Santa's team.
