This classic is ruined by the introduction. While famous men such as North Pole Discoverer Robert E. Peary and famous leader & educator Booker T. Washington made 2 or 3 page introductions this version has a new 38 page one. Why 38 pages of introduction? It is not really an introduction, but rather a put down of the great African American Matthew Henson. The point is to persuade the reader that Henson was too illiterate to have written his book. And equally unbelieveable is the assertion that they never reached the Pole! Is someone rewritting history to suit their own agenda? You may be right.Was this review helpful?
