Lawrence Millman on Edward Beauclerk Maurice's diary

The Last Gentleman Adventurer

Lawrence Millman wrote the foreward and saw through the publication of Edward Beauclerk Maurice's diary, called "The Last Gentleman Adventurer: Coming of Age in the Arctic." Millman tells Jim Fleming that Maurice signed up at the age of 16 with the Hudson's Bay Company and was sent to the remote Canadian Arctic in 1930. He taught himself the Inuit language and fell in love with the Inuit culture. Actor Ryan Winkles reads excerpts from the diary.
