In 1938 David Haig-Thomas completed an extraordinary journey of over 1500 miles across the Arctic, using only the clothing, tools and equipment that he had picked up in his time in there. This book tells the amazing story of how he lived amongst the communities of Northwest Greenland where he developed a deep respect for the people of the area and their unparalleled ability to thrive in this challenging environment. In doing so he provides a charismatic and unique insight in to Inuit culture, hunting techniques and travel in the 1930s.

The book is being re-published to support the work of the 'Haig-Thomas Expedition 2015' in their fundraising efforts towards the Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG).
