About this book

First published in 1897, this is the account of Nansen's voyage to the North Pole in the Fram, a revolutionary ship that was designed to be able to be frozen into the Polar ice cap, withstand the crushing pressure and travel north with the sea's drift. Nansen tells of his expedition's struggle against snowdrifts, ice floes, polar bears, scurvy and hunger, and his and crew member Hjalmar Johansen's epic 146 mile trek by foot to their destination. A remarkable account of Polar exploration.
