Komatik \kō-‘ma-tik\ A rawhide-lashed sledge with wooden crossbars and runners, first invented and used by the Inuit of Northern Canada, but since used also by non-Inuit people.
Ned Shenton's eighty plus years have been full of adventure. He is the son of an illustrator father and a writer mother and grew up in small town Pennsylvania. He quickly left home but did not follow in either of their footsteps. Rather he studied oceanography at Texas A&M and worked in the field for many years. He became an expert in underwater craft eventually joined Jacques Cousteau's famous diving saucer crew. Along the way he worked on teams that photographed the early space sattelites and drilled into the Greenland ice sheet. He has loved several old houses, many boats and innumerable automobiles. Looking back over his well-spent life, Ned Shenton is truely grateful.
