In the Canadian Arctic in the cruellest living conditions in the world live two of the few tribes left who depend entirely on hunting to keep themselves alive. For some reason wishing to live in the Canadian Arctic with a tribe of Eskimos and a tribe of Indians when weather conditions were at their worst (anywhere from -35 to -50 degrees Centigrade), the author tells the story "of the two expeditions which enabled him to write a fascinating account of the lives of these two great hunting tribes."
