Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Well worth reading." (Booklist)

"Fans of adventure writing will appreciate this fine book." (Publishers Weekly)

It began as America's first attempt to reach the North Pole. It ended with the captain's suspicious death, a brutal struggle for survival on the polar ice, and a government cover-up. With eight pages of rare photographs and illustrations, Fatal North is a harrowing account of one of the great tragedies in the history of United States exploration.
