I came across the title of the book in a survey by Air Greenland where passengers were asked what they thought of Greenland. Someone had the text Keep Greenland a Secret written down and with that to mine feeling the paradoxical nail beaten on the head. You’d want this beautiful island that has been hushed for centuries and cold and there are only a handful of residents have grown with their country and are very attached to it feel, could remain as it is. But that’s not how the world works. The modern age does are entering rapidly due to, among other things, the climate crisis, Facebook, the global economy and tourism (of which I am of course also an exponent).

The title of the book may therefore also be read as a call to be careful with this land and its inhabitants to go.
