INUK ROGER BULIARD MACMILLAN AND CO 1953 In 15 years in the Arctic, ""Falla"" Buliard, of the Oclate Missionaries, writes of his life and the Eskimos -- as people and as individuals-in a hearty, while detailed fashion. With a station in the Northwest Territory, he learned to know the Barren Land and Arctic Sea, and, though admitting no apostolic wonders, his report as a soldier of Christ bears the mark of courage, vigor and humility. He learned respect too for the relentless country, for storm, fog, cold, and for his violent, cunning, resourceful and skilled-in-existence people who were more often resistant than submissive. Here is an analysis of the Environment that moulded the Eskimo character, a running commentary on their exploits and actions, together with the chronicle of his own life as a ""Long Robe"" whose patience and ingenuity were often tried as customs and traditions offended his religion. There are stories too of bear, fish, caribou and seal, of unusual pastoral trips and the vitally important Eskimo dogs: these are accompanied by a constant criticism of Anglican, governmental and commercial (Hudson's Bay Company) treatment of and attitudes toward the Eskimo. With an introduction by Msgr. Sheen, this is decisively for Catholics, but in its wider sociological and adventurous reaches there should be no denominational barrier. (Kirkus) 22 x 14 cm. Vii + 338 pp + b/w photo plates.

In 15 years in the Arctic, "Falla" Buliard, of the Oclate Missionaries, writes of his life and the Eskimos -- as people and as individuals-in a hearty, while detailed fashion. With a station in the Northwest Territory, he learned to know the Barren Land and Arctic Sea, and, though admitting no apostolic wonders, his report as a soldier of Christ bears the mark of courage, vigor and humility. He learned respect too for the relentless country, for storm, fog, cold, and for his violent, cunning, resourceful and skilled-in-existence people who were more often resistant than submissive. Here is an analysis of the Environment that moulded the Eskimo character, a running commentary on their exploits and actions, together with the chronicle of his own life as a "Long Robe" whose patience and ingenuity were often tried as customs and traditions offended his religion. There are stories too of bear, fish, caribou and seal, of unusual pastoral trips and the vitally important Eskimo dogs: these are accompanied by a constant criticism of Anglican, governmental and commercial (Hudson's Bay Company) treatment of and attitudes toward the Eskimo. With an introduction by Msgr. Sheen its wider sociological and adventurous reaches there should be no denominational barrier. (Kirkus)
