Autorentext

Captain Robert A. Bartlett, the greatest ice captain who ever lived, commanded the Roosevelt on Robert E. Peary's last two attempts to conquer the North Pole; pioneered the trail over rough ice that brought Peary to within 150 miles of his goal; and was the last white man Peary sent back before his final dash to the Pole. Edward E. Leslie is the author of Desperate Journeys and Abandoned Souls: The True Story of Castaways and Other Survivors. He lives in Massillon, Ohio.
