This came with a large lot of books we bought at auction recently. Most of the lot have been added to our shop stock but this one doesn’t fit our subject specialities and therefore will be passed on via bookcrossing.

I took that book while attending the Bookcrossing Convention in London.

Since childhood I have already read a few books about polar expeditions. They are always fascinating.

It soon became obvious that the book is US American, but that was rather amusing.
Towards the end they even admitted that two of their explores claimed, but in truth never reached, the North Pole.
The book also mentions Nunavut, the newest Canadian Territory of the Inuit.
Since it is a rather small volume it only gives a brief overview of the explorers and their trips.
I find the included maps quite helpful.


Now that I have read the book I left it for my co workers at the unofficial BCZ.

A fascinating book about the history of arctic exploration.

A little US centristic, but that didn't bother me too much. Do like this one and going to turn it into a ring...
