Lessons In Living From The Stone Age

(Michael - When reality fails to meet expectations, the problem is not reality.) #1


I posted this link in another topic, but I think it stands on its own. It is an account of Vilhjalmur Stefansson’s first encounter with Coronation Gulf Eskimos in Arctic Canada (1910) published in Harper’s Magazine in 1939. I think Stefansson’s observation is about as close as you get to describing the lives of our Pleistocene ancestors. And the consequences of contact with the ‘outside’. Enjoy.

Note: the text is light and small, so you may need to zoom in to read clearly. The Search Box will go away after 30 seconds or so.

Why high fat and not just low/zero carbs?
