From 1860-62, Hall (1821-71), the American polar explorer, embarked in the whaling barque ‘George Henry’ on the first of two voyages to the Canadian Arctic region aimed at investigating the fate of Sir John Franklin’s lost expedition of 1847. During his time in the Arctic, Hall lived amongst the Inuit community, learning their language and embracing their everyday life. First published in 1864, Hall’s recollections remain of great interest to anthropologists, sociologists and geographers. His eye-witness accounts of the indigenous people’s dwellings, hunting pursuits, birth and death rites, transportation, interpersonal relationships, and survival strategies in severe weather conditions provide an insight into Inuit culture in the nineteenth century.
