If I only accomplish a third of what Peter Freuchen accomplished in his lifetime I shall be very happy Except for the self amputation of part of his own foot I'll leave that well enough alone Freuchen led an incredibly exciting life and this book is one that is hard to put downVagrant Viking is Freuchen's autobiography Born in Denmark he was a disturbing child that performed many hijinks As he grew up he realized University was not for him and instead joined an expedition to Greenland and the arctic Here he would stay many years running a trading post and marrying but Greenland wasn't the last of his travels and he also went to Siberia and to Hollywood to make movies During World War II he was part of the resistance and was arrested several times by the Gestapo And those are only some of his storiesIf this book was only about Freuchen it would still be remarkable He did so much with his life and made an impact on so many people While I think he was a little socio pathic as a youth he grew out of that and helped a lot of people Most of the people he mentions in this book are spoken of fondly He obviously loved his first wife Navarana and missed her deeply when she died His second wife Magda was distant and based on his descriptions I'm not sure what he saw in her She certainly didn't have any redeeming ualities that I could see His third wife Dagmar also didn't play much of a role in the book but at least seemed a stronger person than Magda People you knew he definitely didn't like were Hitler's regime As part of the underground movement he made a lot of trouble for the Gestapo in DenmarkFreuchen goes on a lot of adventures in this book Some of them good some of them bad and he comes close to dying a few times But that doesn't stop him I like the way he added such detail to his books You get the full effect of the taste of rotting seal or the fear of hiding from the Germans Freuchen gets his emotions across very well And while some of these descriptions might not be for everyone the aforementioned seal I hazard a guess that everyone will find something they like in this book Just the section on Hollywood and his experiences making movies was exciting I now want to find his movie and watch it as he does actually act in itA fantastic life and I'm glad he shared it with us Between this book and the Book of the Eskimos I read from him I'm very much now a fanVagrant VikingCopyright 1953414 pagesReview by M Reynard 2013 More of my reviews can be found at wwwifithaswordsblogspotcom
