520    Dr. Wilfred Grenfell's harrowing tale of near-death on the
       ice of northern Newfoundland. How does a man save his own 
       life? In 1908 Dr. Wilfred Grenfell, a medical missionary 
       in northern Newfoundland, was traveling by dog team to 
       treat a patient. In his haste Grenfell took a short cut 
       across the sea ice. A change of wind and ice conditions 
       left the doctor and his sled dogs stranded on an ice pan, 
       their komatik and provisions lost. Grenfell came close to 
       perishing. Adrift on an ice pan is Grenfell's own account 
       of this near-fatal misadventure. He survived dauntingly 
       cold and seemingly hopeless conditions through an 
       inventive presence of mind and by sacrificing and skinning
       three of his sled dogs to clothe himself against the 
       elements. Because of his tenacity and quick thinking, and 
       that of his rescuers, Grenfell endured. If you like arctic
       or outdoor adventure stories or are on the lookout for 
       winter survival tips you'll enjoy the blow by blow of 
       Grenfell's tale.
