Flamingo B format edition of this literary novel based around the Victorian obsession with mapping and classification - which even extended to the inhospitable environment of the icy Arctic. A tale of endeavour and polar peril which tells the story of a nineteenth century Arctic expedition and of the women who were left behind.
