On September 1, 1835, Commodore Craigmont T Amsterdam, First Secretary of the Royal Navy’s Polar Explorer Society and Mechanical Engineer in modest standing with the British Engineering Society, launched from dockside on the spit joining Labrador and northern Quebec, on the east tip of Ungava Bay in northern Canada, a single-man, self-propelled bathysphere of his own design and engineering in an attempt to find and secure the mythical north-west passage, from the Hudson Bay to the Behring Strait via the ice-locked waterways between the islands and peninsulas above 77° north latitude.

"Trapped Under the pack-Ice" is purportedly the journal of Commodore Amsterdam.In pursuit of an impossible task, and beset by faulty equipment, his own incompetence, isolation, brutal cold and exploding food, the Commodore’s journey takes a bizarre turn when lonely madness and another life form deep beneath the crushing Arctic ice forces him to places he dare only dream.
