A sequel to the popular juveniles, "The Snow Baby" and "Children of the Arctic." Which explore the Inuit [Eskimo] culture that Peary’s daughter, Snow Baby grew up with.
True stories, some written for, and others told to, the Snow Baby by her father; with one story by the Snow Baby herself. The stories are of the inhabitants of the wonderful land
of eternal snow and ice, where the days and nights are each months long, where the cold is intense and the silence awful. And yet there are people and animals, children and dogs, there, the same as m our own home country. [PW]
