Rockwell Kent's Greenland Book. With over eighty illustrations by the author. Fridolf Johnson writes in Rockwell Kent: An Anthology of His Work, "Salimina, published in 1935, was widely praised and reviewed. The London Times pointed out that it was 'the first book about Greenland and the Greenlanders to be written by an artist... the men, women and children who crowd into the pages of this book are human beings first and Greenlanders afterwards.'"
