Arctic Superstars is a thoroughly researched account of the fascinating lives and harrowing journeys of Adolphus Washington Greely and George Wallace Melville, career military officers and Civil War heroes who explored vast reaches of the Arctic during the early 1880s. Greely was best known for commanding the ill-fated Lady Franklin Bay Expedition and Melville for exploring the bitter-cold reaches of Siberia. Both men were among the first five Honorary Members elected by The American Alpine Club shortly after the organization was founded in 1902.
