Kabloona is a true story of a journey into the North. This extraordinary classic has been variously acclaimed as one of the great books of adventure, travel, anthropology, and spiritual awakening. In the summer of 1938, the Frenchman Gontran de Poncins traveled beyond the "Barren Lands" north of the Arctic Circle to Kind William Island, an island of 10,000 square miles. The entire population of the island consisted of 25 Eskimos, their primitive lives untouched by the civilization of the white man. For 15 months Gontran de Poncins lived among the Inuit people of the Arctic. He is at first appalled by their way of life: eating rotten raw fish, sleeping with each others' wives, ignoring schedules, and helping themselves to his possessions. But as de Poncins' odyssey continues, he is transformed from Kabloona, The White Man, an uncomprehending outsider, to someone who finds himself living, for a few short months, as Inuk: a man, preeminently. 1.

Freddy is certainly an extraordinary pig by all accounts. Although he spends his time oversleeping and overeating just like a normal pig, he also finds the time to daydream, enterprise, and even write poetry! Always full of new ideas, he proposes that the animals of Bean Farm start a tour company. Promoting himself to president of Barnyard Tours, Inc., Freddy arranges an expedition to the frigid Arctic. Freddy, Jinx the cat, Eeny the mouse, Robert the dog, Charles the Rooster and a host of other animals travel all the way to the North Pole. Unfortunately, their plans freeze as they encounter a pack of polar problems--but at least they get to visit Santa Claus! Between 1926 and 1958, Walter R. Brooks wrote 26 books on the adventures of Freddy the Pig. Considered to be one of the greatest characters in American children's literature, Freddy still enjoys enormous popularity today, and his timeless tales are considered to be the American equivalents of the Pooh stories. 1.
