Into the Ice: The Story of Arctic Exploration
Lynn Curlee (au) (il)
The Far North has always been a place of mystery. Alien and wild, it has the powerful allure of the unknown, a call explorers have heeded for hundreds of years. First came the search for a route through the polar ice cap to the rich lands of Asia. The Northeast and Northwest Passages were painstakingly traced. Then the race was on to one of the remotest points on earth -- the North Pole. The desire for knowledge, wealth, adventure, and fame fueled expedition after expedition. Some arctic explorers met with success and celebrity; others found madness and death; while a few simply disappeared, never to be seen again. This book traces the slow unveiling of the secrets of this frozen region, a majestic place that has been traveled but never tamed. Full-color illus.
