The Last of the Gentlemen Adventurers
Coming of Age in the ArcticLarge Print - 2005
In 1930 a sixteen-year-old boy left England to become one of the last of the 'gentlemen adventurers' - the fur traders of the Hudson's Bay Company. In the Arctic he found adventure, love and sadness as he came to grips with Eskimo life. Beautifully written, inspiring and funny, this is a boy's own story that captures a world now lost forever.
