This 1941 account of Gontran de Poncins's time with the Inuits is fascinating. Poncins describes his experiences with these people vividly as he encounters a radically different life from anything he has ever known before. Grover Gardner changes his delivery to match the varied terrain Poncins covers. Sounding at home in Inuit, Gardner also sounds worldly, disgusted, freezing, and fascinated in smooth and easy succession. The only element of the narrative Gardner doesn't bring fully to life is Poncins's exhaustion; his voice always sounds too rich and cultured to reflect fatigue.
