    I worked on a whale study out of Barrow, Alaska years ago. I was resting in a hut near the coast one day when a local Eskimo walked in. He looked really agitated and was carrying a gun. (Race relations in Alaska are often strained, as native peoples naturally resent white people imposing their rules and snubbing their cultures.)

    Anyway, I noticed a paperback lying on the floor and was shocked by the title: DIE ESKIMO.

    Fortunately, he didn't see the book. Turns out it was in German; the title simply translated "The Eskimo."
