Jules Verne (a.); J. Edward Baxter (transl.). An exciting novel by renowned French author Jules Verne, originally published in 1873, about the Canadian Arctic. Jasper Hobson was sure that the trading post he & his Hudsonís Bay Co. expedition had built overlooking the Arctic Ocean was set on solid ground. On his maps it was shown as Cape Bathurst, but in fact it was a huge ice shelf. In the dead of winter a volcanic eruption broke it loose, & the spring thaw found the whole expedition adrift on an ice island. To some, it seemed that this might be their last expedition. To others, the end of pioneering attempts to study the Arctic. And to the Inuit woman, it seemed that she lost her gamble.
