Peter Noble adds a sense of rollicking wonder to his trademark urbanity as he narrates this biography of Danish adventurer, author, and Hollywood bon vivant Peter Freuchen. Everything seems larger than life about the 6-foot-6-inch-tall Freuchen: his appetites--he loved fermented walrus and boiled caribou, his creativity--he wrote more than 30 bestselling novels, and his friendships with people who ranged from arctic explorers to film stars. Freuchen's adventures began in 1906, when the 20-year-old bearded med-school dropout first traveled to the west coast of Greenland, where he fell in love with the physical risks and punishing extremes of life in the arctic and especially with the Inuit people. Noble's big delivery reflects the big life of this remarkable gentle giant of the twentieth century. B.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
