Renatus' Kayak: The Story of a Labrador Inuk, an American G.I. and a Secret World War II Weather Station
Rozanne Enerson Junker
Rozanne Enerson Junker took her PhD in political science after studying anthropology, history and economics at the University of Oregon. She is an avid kayaker, bird watcher and nature photographer who enjoys a good mystery. She divides her time between San Francisco, California and Blue Sea, Quebec.
Woody Belsheim had one question when he gave his niece, Rozanne Enerson Junker, a miniature sealskin kayak made for him in 1944 by Inuit hunter Renatus Tuglavina: Would it be possible for you to find out what happened to Renatus...and to his daughter, Harriot? Woody had seldom spoken about his World War II service when he and six other G.I.s manned a secret American weather station in Hebron, Labrador. But sixty-five years later, and nearing the end of his life, he hoped to find out what had become of the Inuit family who had transformed what could have been a year of painful isolation into an year of unimaginable adventures. Using the kayak as a spirit guide, Junker travelled thousands of miles across Canada, the United States and England. Each step along the way, stunning discoveries presented themselves: the existence of a weather station lost to time, Renatus' larger than life footprint on Labrador history, and his and Harriot's tragic destinies. Renatus' Kayak is a true detective story that delves into military history, Inuit culture, wartime politics and a star-crossed love.
