This true story of bold adventure recounts the extraordinary journeys of Fridtjof Nansen, a scientist and explorer determined to discover what secrets lie hidden in the frozen far North. He crossed the icy wastes of Greenland and later journeyed into the polar ice to study Arctic Ocean currents. On that expedition, he attempted to trek to the North Pole. What happened in the forbidding land of ice, polar bears, and killing cold makes for a gripping tale of survival. Illustrated with maps and Nansen's own photographs and drawings, this book contains a wealth of information about the polar region.
