Farthest North

by Fridtjof Nansen

A wonderfully descriptive account of life on board a ship locked in the ice as it drifts North toward the pole, by the leader of the expedition. Either his English was flawless, or the translation from the Norwegian was so.
The second book (with pictures !)is available on Project Gutenberg in several formats, including Kindle with photographs. So far, it too is a great read.
