Taking special care around the treacherous cracks in the ice near Cap Hope village in Greenland, Emil Madsen selects the best spot for some on-shore seal hunting. (Emil Madsen is featured in the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of his typical day's worth of food in May was 6500 kcals. He is 40 years of age; 5 feet, 8.5 inches tall; and 170 pounds. In the spring this can be dangerous because the ice is breaking up and sometimes huge pieces break off and move out to sea. He is carrying a rifle and home-made wooden gun support.
