Abstract
Pertains to the autobiography of Henry A. Larsen, a Canadian explorer, seaman and member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The publication tells of Larsen’s heroism and expertise that ultimately saved his life, in the most trying of circumstances. The authors tell of Larsen’s relationship with the Inuit Indigenous Peoples in Northern Canada and the ways in which they respected him. Written much like a diary, The Big Ship offers compelling detail on the extravagant life of Larsen and his crew, as they battled the open sea in hopes of finding adventure.
