Description

When explorer Robert Peary returned from reaching the North Pole in 1909his third attempthe was shocked to learn Dr. Frederick Cook claimed to have reached it nearly a whole year before him. Both mens assertions are now in doubt! That doesnt make this exciting account of the race to the North Pole any less fascinating. Readers will immerse themselves in the world of Arctic exploration and all that entailed at the beginning of the 20th century, including adopting Inuit customs. Quotations from each explorer, a timeline, and photographs of the people and places involved in this intense rivalry will cast light on the controversial competition.
