So, right now, I'm obsessed with anything Arctic. Novels, non-fiction, anything. Which is why I picked up this little volume.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
It's a quick read, fairly easy, with lots of luscious little end notes full of information and biographies. It gives an overview of various expeditions up to the John Franklin expedition, which is mysteriously lost. And then in moves from sheer exploration to explore and rescue, and the various misadventures of all the teams involved. They writing is choppy and simple, but the information more than makes up for that, because it's just so INTERESTING. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
