Karluk: The Great Untold Story of Arctic Exploration
William Laird McKinlay (au). Tells the story of the ship Karluk, which set sail on its ill-fated expedition to the Arctic in June 1913. Vilhjalmur Stefansson, the Canadian explorer & captain, led 25 crew members -- seamen & scientists -- on a journey from which 11 of them would never return. The ship was trapped in the ice after only a few weeks. Ill-prepared & lacking in leadership, the men were forced to abandon Karluk. They lived on drifting ice-floes for 6 months while the ship’s commander completed a hazardous 700-mile journey to Siberia in search of rescue. Eight men disappeared while attempting to reach land, one shot himself, & two died of malnutrition & disease before the rest were rescued. Photos.
