Synopsis

Anthropologist Jean Briggs spent seventeen months living on a remote Arctic shore as the \\\"adopted daughter\\\" of an Eskimo family. Through vignettes of daily life she unfolds a warm and perceptive tale of the behavioral patterns of the Utku, their way of training children, and their handling of deviations from desired behavior.
