9 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Flaherty's Nanook of the North (1922) was the first full-length anthropological documentary in cinematic history. Drawing from the unpublished diaries of the director and his wife, Frances, Robert Christopher's biography deepens our understanding of a film legend and his groundbreaking work. Previous biographical work has neglected the critical contributions Frances made to his development as an artist. Robert and Frances Flaherty charts her transformation from a Bryn Mawr bluestocking to the partner of a frontier explorer and offers her unique perspective as his collaborator and publicist."--Jacket

The wedding of Palo (Palos Brudefaerd) (1934), Nanook's obvious successor, is the last beautiful work of the famed Danish polar explorer and anthropologist Dr. Knud Rasmussen.

It is mastered in high definition and digitally restored from an original 35mm nitrate print in the collection of George Eastman House
