First English translation of this 19th century novel tracing the relationship between traditional Greenlandic life and the interaction with the culture of their Danish colonizers.These first hand accounts of Greenlanders have rarely been recorded. Written in 1887, with exquisite poetic detail, the dynamics driving ritual, domestic affairs and women's place in society are described as never before.Signe Rink (née Miller, 1836–1909) was born and raised in Greenland. Eden of The North was written after Rink returned to Denmark in 1883, and was followed by two more novels in 1886 and 1902. She remains the first female interpreter of Greenlandic culture and maintains a poetic style only achieved by the deepest of empathies developed after many years of living and working among Inuit as a woman and a scientist. L.S. Johanson was born in San Diego,California. L.S. later moved to Scandinavia where she lived on a small farm in western Denmark for 25 years. As an interpreter, translator, and teacher, she studied languages and linguistics at Aalborg University and Aarhus University in Denmark (Cand.Phil., Cand.Mag.) She has been translating fiction and non-fiction professionally in the U.S. and Scandinavia for over two decades. She currently lives, writes, and works in Vermont.
