A wildly eccentric Dane with a quirky sense of humor, Peter Freuchen (1886-1957) had an insatiable curiosity which drove him from the twilight years of Arctic exploration to the Golden Age of Hollywood, and from climate research to the Danish underground during World War II. As Reid Mitenbuler reveals, Freuchen conducted bold expeditions, survived a Nazi prison camp, and overcame the loss of his foot, even as he was championing Indigenous communities and environmental stewardship in ways that were far ahead of his time.

"Writing with panache and insight, Reid Mitenbuler serves up the many faceted life of Peter Freuchen."—Washington Post
