    Greenland is perhaps the only land that was once a colony of a European power that by choice became an integral and semi-autonomous province within the colonizing power, the Kingdom of Denmark. It is now evolving toward independence. This book is a collection of 19th century eye-witness narratives of Greenland, – the land (“Could any place be handsomer than Greenland?”) and its people – that record the slowly evolving status of that colony toward independence in the 21st century. It is a unique record within the world’s political history. The narratives draw us “as if by some unseen hand into a land of enchantment.”

    Spencer Apollonio visited Greenland three times in the early 1950s when the political evolution of Greenland within Denmark was formalized by a visit by the Royal family. He lives in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
