About this book

Attaining 90 degrees North, the North Pole, has been a quest from around the 16th century to the present. Fergus Fleming's rip-roaring book recounts the efforts made from the mid-19th century to the present, in a wonderfully readable and entertaining style. Whether by sea, sledge or air, and attempted by British, American, German, Austro-Hungarian or Norwegian explorers, the details of each campaign reveal new insights into the arctic environment and human endurance.
Barrow's Boys and Killing Dragons garnered reviews including:
'This is travel history of the best kind: entertaining, informed and opionated' Sunday Times
'Absolutely gripping ... part thriller, part black comedy' Ian Hislop

It is immensely enjoyable' Daily Telegraph 'Fleming gives us a wonderful story, and tells it exceptionally well' Guardian 'Fleming's is among the best of the [ice] books.... All the great stories are here!' Robert Macfarlane, The Observer 'Travel history at its brilliant best. Best-selling author Fergus Fleming has produced a masterly tale of the race to reach the northern most point of the globe' Irish Independent 'A vividly frostbitten account. The reading, in a warm room, is great fun' The Independent
