Details

In 1906, from the north of Greenland, Commander Robert E Peary claimed to have sighted a mountainous island in the Arctic Ocean. Six years later, two of his disciples, George Borup and Donald MacMillan, assembled a team to fill in this last blank space on the globe. This book follows their doomed expedition through blizzards, dissension, disease and a fatal boating accident, in search of a land that never existed. American-cut pages.
