Knud Rasmussen (1879–1933) was unique among Arctic explorers. Rejecting the elaborate equipment, extensive supplies and large teams employed by other expeditions, he travelled with a few Inuit assistants, learning from them how to live off the land. This first full-scale biography captures the Greenland-born ethnographer’s courage, charisma and sense of adventure, records his profound respect for Inuit culture, and charts his crowning achievement, a 20,000-mile odyssey by dog-sled from Greenland to Alaska.
