pisugtooq



"Nothing - no laboratory result or field-camp speculation -
can replace the rich, complex texture, the credibility, of something
that takes place 'out there'. And scientists working in the field know
that what they see in the field always has the potential to contradict
what they have read or been told.

[...] No matter how long you watch, you will not see all it(he) can do."

(Barry Lopez, Arctic Dreams)


* the Eskimos of northwest Greenland call the 
polar bear 'pisugtooq', the great wanderer
