North-East Greenland 1908-60

North-East Greenland 1908-60

By Peter Schmidt Mikkelsen

This book provides a history of all the wintering stations in North-East Greenland, used by trappers as well as scientists and members of the Sirius sledge patrol. The trappers, usually Danish and Norwegian, brought with them provisions for one or two years as well as a good deal of courage and endurance. The aim of the trapping was to collect the winter skins of foxes and polar bears to be sold in Europe and support the future at home. Individual trappers often wintered for several years in a row.
