The Last of the Gentlemen Adventurers

Edward Beauclerk Maurice / Gordon Dulieu
In 1930 Edward Beauclerk Maurice a shy sixteen-year-old decided to pursue an uncertain future as an apprentice fur trader among the Eskimos. With no telephone no radio communication and only one annual visit from the supply ship he found life in Baffin Land isolated and harsh. The Innuit taught him to build igloos hunt polar bears and survive the arctic winter. He became fascinated with the myths and folklore that underpinned this remote culture and formed close friendships. This is a vivid portrait of a unique society and the moving story of an unforgettable young man determined to triumph over every circumstance.
