This true tale of a young girl (Margret Lucy Fenton) who grew up in the Arctic Ocean. At that time it was common (according to the text) for missionaries to "pluck children" out of their homes and drop them into Catholic Churches to "teach" them. This girl's experiences were heart-breaking. She not only lost her culture, but her joy. The maps and pictures were wonderful and made the reading almost like viewing someone's scrapbook.
