Recalling a time when polar expeditions were equal parts adventure and academic discovery, this book pays tribute to the 1990 Trans-Ellesmere Island ski expedition, the first human-powered, non-Inuit, lengthwise crossing of one of the largest islands in the High Arctic. Since the expedition, the observations and measurements from the trek have produced more than a dozen ground-breaking articles on environmental contamination, wildlife distribution, and garbage littering. These studies - together with previously unpublished research findings and with many astounding photographs - are collected under a single cover for the first time.
