There is a non-authorial inscription on the half title page from one couple to another, stating "Father De C. is a good friend of ours, we hope you enjoy his story". "This is (the story of 'The People Beyond'), occasionally poignant, often shocking, but always heroic, from the opening scene of birth in an isolated iglu lit only by a flickering blubber lamp to the final disaster wrought by an epidemic that rages through a whole encampment. Raymond de Coccola was a missionary among these people for twelve years. In surroundings that could not have been more different from his native Corsica, he resolved to learn to understand the people by entering fully into their lives. He shared their quarters in iglu and tent, travelled with them on land and sea in the long winter and short summer, and took his full share in the skilled and unremitting labour of the hunt. Out of this experience comes an account of Eskimo life that will hold every reader fascinated." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling, small split on front hinge, very small chips and tears at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds - some with small creases.very light edge browning, light soiling - mainly on rear panel.
