"For a long time, I had wondered about the top of the world and those who managed to survive in the harsh Arctic climate. In 1974, the opportunity came up and I found myself in an 8-seater plane landing in the small remote settlement of Pangnirtung on the east coast of Baffin Islands above the Arctic Circle.

It was July, the peak of summer with a temperature just below freezing. I had a tent, a sleeping bag, layers of clothes, 2 cameras and enough food supplies to last 2 weeks (a flight requirement). After three freezing nights spent in my tent, I was invited into the red trimmed prefab home of Paulusee and Malaya Nowyook and their 2 children. The family slept in one room, while I had a room to myself, shared only with a snow bunting (a small Arctic bird thought to bring good fortune)."
