Anthropologist Jean L. Briggs spent seventeen months living on a remote Arctic shore as the "adopted daughter" of an Eskimo family. Through vignettes of daily life she unfolds a warm and perceptive tale of the behavioral patterns of the Utku, their way of training children, and their handling of deviations from desired behavior.

Absorbingly and affectingly written. A remarkable that bids to become an anthropological classic.
