Nowadays tourists pay to be taken to the North Pole by icebreaker, but a century ago brave men vied with each other to get there first. Their stories form the subject of this book. With chapters on Nansen, Peary, Franklin, DeLong, Nordenskjold, and others, it has all the ingredients of a bestseller: danger; heroism; greed; tragedy and triumph; and a feud that still simmers today.
