A Q&A with award-winning author Stephen R. Bown

October 2015

Stephen R. Bown, known across the country for his award-winning books on the history of science, exploration and ideas, has just released a biography of an Arctic explorer who was more concerned with learning about Inuit culture than being the first to accomplish some glamorous feat. White Eskimo: Knud Rasmussenís Fearless Journey into the Heart of the Arctic is the first full-length biography of the original explorer and ethnographer to write about the language and the life of the Arctic peoples.

To find out more about the book and the research that went into producing it, see this Q&A with Stephen R. Bown. Stephen Bown Q&A
