With chronological chapters featuring emblematic Arctic explorers - including Elisha Kent Kane, Charles Hall, and Robert Peary - this title reveals why the North Pole, a region so geographically removed from Americans, became an iconic destination for discovery.
This monograph is clear, detailed, meticulously researched, and elegantly written. . . . [Robinson] offers a new and convincing interpretation of the cultural significance of Americans' devotion to Arctic exploration in this period. . . .--Kathryn Morse, "Reviews in American History"
