Farthest North

by Fridtjof Nansen

Interesting account of early polar exploration with perhaps rather too much description of life cooped up in a frozen-in ship in the Arctic Ocean. Unfortunately the interesting bit, two men with dogs travelling over the polar ice, unsupported and with no hope of rescue from outside, is in volume 2, and not provided here.
