Knud Rasmussen

“When I was a child I used often to hear an old Greenlandic woman tell how, far away North, at the end of the world, there lived a people who dressed in bearskins and ate raw flesh. Their country was always shut by ice, and the daylight never reached over the tops of their high fjords. Even before I knew what travelling meant, I determined that one day I would go and find these people.” – Knud Rasmussen.
