Excerpt from The Netsilik Eskimos: Social Life and Spiritual Culture

It is a matter of course that I owe gratitude to my predecessors in these regions, specially Roald Amundsen and Godfred Hansen.

As in the foregoing Volume VII I have elected to allow the various experiences I had on my journeys to form a part of_the ethnographical descriptions. It is probable that many details ought properly to have been grouped separately; and indeed I am' aware that in adopting this method I am committing a breach of current practice. I have deter mined to do so, however, rather than break the continuance of the narrative merely for the purpose of building up a dry and schematical grouping which, in many cases, would not form a collective and exhaustive whole anyhow.
