This book recounts the true story of the first known people to ever reach the 80th parallel north during the early 20th Century. From the start, clashing interests divided the team into two parties: one led by controversial explorer Viljhalmur Stefansson, and the other by respected scientist Rudolph Anderson. Their personal conflict would shape the expedition and contribute to the sinking of their ship, the Karluk, stranding the team in the freezing Arctic. Despite it all, the explorers pushed ahead into new and uncharted lands, and with the crucial help of local Inuit peoples, made remarkable discoveries. This is an epic tale of adventure, achievement, as well as death and disaster.
