Well-written powerful historical fiction book of Equriusaq (Billy Bah) who was the main seamstress for Lt. Peary and his crew in their attempt to get to the North Pole. The author previous wrote a children's book on the birth in Greenland and young life of Peary's daughter. She then pondered what it would be like to tell of the explorers from the point of view of an Inuit. ( Eqariusaq was taken to the US for a year to help take care of Peary's young daughter.) The author did a lot of historical research and I learned a lot form her book as well as enjoyed reading the novel.
