Seal hunter Emil Madsen's wife Erika cleans a seal shot by her husband at their home in Cap Hope, Greenland. (Emil Madsen is featured in the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) After cleaning, she will cook the best meat for her family, feed the remains to the sled dogs, then dry and sell the sealskin. Seal meat continues to be an important source of meat for some Greenlanders, but for many, Danish food has replaced it in the native diet.
