    Incredible Eskimo by DeCoccola Raymond King Paul

    Hancock House, 1986-01-01. Paperback. 8.5 5.5 1.25. Hancock House The Book is a story of survival and hope in the Central Canadian Arctic. Father Raymond's first hand accounts of survival and life with the Eskimo. For twelve arduous but captivating years, Raymond de Coccola was, for all intents and purposes, a Barren Land Eskimo. Trained as an Oblate missionary, he ministered to the people of the Central Canadian Arctic while sharing their epic struggle to survive in this land of ice and snow. It is an unforgettable portrait of adventure, of murder, of sexual mores. It is Father Raymond's touching first-person revelation of birth and of death, or patience and of fatalism; and it is a staggering account of his people's tragedy and loss. A missionary's survival and life with the Eskimo. 64 page glossy b/w photo section.
