Editorial Reviews

In THE WHITE DAWN, three sailors find their boat capsized while in the arctic hunting for polar bears and walruses. Rescued by Eskimo, the sailors are welcomed into the village and immediately notice that this world is much different from the society they’re used to. Daggett (Bottoms), the youngest of the group, adapts to his new style of living, while Billy (Oates) and Portigee (Gossett Jr.) have a much harder time. Without giving up hope of being rescued, they start to bring their own culture into the village, introducing the Eskimos to alcohol and gambling. The Eskimos at first tolerate this behavior, but soon after become angered.
