Give Me My Fathers Body: The Life of Minik, the New York Eskimo by Kenn Harper

In 1897, American explorer Robert Peary brought Minik Wallace, a young Polar Eskimo, from northwestern Greenland to New York. During his 12 years in America, Miniks adoptive family went from riches to rags, and Miniks own life was shattered by the traumatic discovery of his fathers skeleton on display in the American Museum of Natural History. Sent back to Greenland in 1909, Minik had to relearn his native language and hunting skills to survive. Told here for the first time, this dark chapter from the golden age of Polar expedition is based on original research in Greenland, Denmark, and the U.S.
