Under a Pole Star – Stef Penney


imgres.jpgThis is a complex book, set in the time of exploration of the North Pole at the end of 19th century.

It deals with multiple issues – exploitation of the Inuit (first people); the role of women; obsession and the corrupting desire of ambition.

It is a fascinating portrayal of a specific time and place, but one that would be suited to senior readers due to some content.
