The Eskimo Girl and the Englishman is a sequel to the delightful story Once Upon an Eskimo Time which recounts the remarkable life of Minnie and her Eskimo mother as she comes of age in a traditional village on Alaska's western coast. Resuming the tale on the day Minnie encounters her first white man, "The Eskimo Girl and the Englishman" relates the next century of Minnie's adventurous life--painting a picture of early twentieth-century village life as Minnie and her Englishman marry and find the determination, strength, and courage to live life in the face of tragedy, rapidly-changing technology, and unrelenting hardship along the Bering Sea. Accompanied by photographs of early Eskimo village life, the narrative poignantly captures a sense of a now-vanished lifestyle on the Seward Peninsula.
