Kabloona by Gontran de Poncins
Review by:  Fallon, Northwest Branch

Kabloona (Eskimo for "White Man") is the true story of a Frenchman who traveled to King William Land to study the Netsilik Eskimos. They were the primitive Eskimos who had lived the same since the stone age, and the book, written from the author's journals explores the physical and physiological side of the Eskimo life.
Why I picked it up: I had to pick a book for my book report from a list, and the description o said "unlike any book you've ever read," and I was instantly intrigued.
Why I finished it: The content of the book was fascinating, and I learned a lot of interesting things. However it was very badly organized.
I'd recommend it to:  Anyone who is interested in primitive culture in general.
