In this exciting book the author has recaptured all the drama and heartbreak of Robert E. Peary's and Dr. Frederick Albert Cook's battle to be the first man to claim the Arctic Pole. His account - based largely on personal diaries, contemporary accounts and interviews with survivors - is a remarkable tribute to two extraordinary men.
