The compelling and tragic story of the life of Minik, the lone survivor of six Inuit taken from their Greenland home to New York in 1897. In New York the Eskimos were displayed to a paying public like freaks. Four of them, including Minik's father, soon died and Minik was set adrift. This is a gut-wrenching account of cultural imperialism and survival.
