He acquired a reputation almost larger than life with his discovery of the Copper Inuit - a hitherto unknown people - his insistence on living as the local people did, and, with Natkusiak, his Inuit co-explorer, his adventurous forays onto barren ice for months at a time. He was a fixture in the New York Greenwich Village scene and, later in his life, taught at Dartmouth College. However, despite his detailed field diaries and the frenzy of publicity that followed his every move, his private life has remained largely unknown." "Then, in 1987, an accidental discovery in a flea market of hundreds of private letters and documents proved to be those belonging to Stefansson, and they told a story of private relationships, in particular with two southern women, Orpha Cecil Smith, to whom Stefansson was engaged, and the novelist Fannie Hurst, with whom Stefansson was involved for many years. Moreover, letters between some of Stefansson's friends as well as his own field diaries alluded to an important relationship Stefansson had with an Inupiat woman in the Arctic, Pannigabluk, and to their son, Alex." "Gisli Palsson has followed the trail of these sources and conducted many interviews with Stefansson's northern descendants, uncovering a complex and perhaps torn personality. In Travelling Passions, we have a much more complete picture of the man who figured so largely in the imagination of the early twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET+-+55600193062982ocn013741479book19860.70Hunt, William RStef : a biography of Vilhjalmur Stefansson, Canadian Arctic explorerBiographyScholarly biography which examines all of Stefansson's varied careers2982ocn057182002book20040.23Berton, PierrePrisoners of the NorthHistoryBiographyExamines the true stories of five Arctic adventurers who braved the harsh Arctic landscape between the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries+-+82506213252933ocn046402424book20010.79Stefansson, VilhjalmurWriting on ice : the ethnographic notebooks of Vilhjalmur Stefansson"Between 1906 and 1918, anthropologist and explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson went on three long expeditions to the Alaskan and Canadian Arctic. He wrote voluminously about his travels and observations, as did others. Stefansson's fame was partly fueled by a series of controversies involving envious competitors in the race for public recognition. While many anthropological works refer to his writings, and he continues to be cited in ethnographic and historical works on indigenous peoples of the North American Arctic, particularly the Inuit, his successes in exploration (the discovery and mapping of some of the last remaining uncharted land on earth) have overshadowed his anthropological work+-+44660193062304ocn008990148book19620.70Le Bourdais, Donat MarcStefansson, ambassador of the NorthBiographyVilhjalmur Stefansson (November 3, 1879-August 26, 1962), an anthropologist, explorer, book collector, and writer, was an authority on polar regions. At one time a student for the Unitarian ministry, he spent his life as an evangelist for the North. His message was that the Arctic was not a peripheral frozen wasteland populated by savages, but the center of the earth?the "Polar Mediterranean," he called it?where America, Europe, and Asia come together. He challenged the stereotype of the "Eskimo" as a primitive, inferior race, holding them up instead as models of successful adaptation and teachers from whom we have much to learn1948ocn002125515book19240.59Noice, HaroldWith Stefansson in the ArcticNarrative of author's adventures in the Canadian arctic as a member of Stefansson's expedition of 1913-181781ocn003000527book19660.17Berry, ErickMr. Arctic; an account of Vilhjalmur StefanssonBiography1741ocn001456513book19660.06Myers, HortenseVilhjalmur Stefansson : young Arctic explorerJuvenile worksBiographyWorking to earn money for his education.
