Summary
For most of his life, an explorer fought to conquer the North Pole On March 1, 1909, only 413 miles of treacherous ice separated Robert E. Peary from realizing his lifelong dream of becoming the first man to set foot on the North Pole. On that dark morning on Canada's Ellesmere Island, it was cold enough to freeze a bottle of brandy. Though appearing solid, the ice sat atop seawater, and shifted violently according to the whims of the ocean below. Peary was used to the conditions--he'd barely survived them just three years before when he first tried, and failed, to reach the earth's northernmost point. But this time around, no amount of peril could dissuade Peary and his party from their attempt. He cried "Forward, march!" and the journey of a lifetime began. Written with thrilling detail and heart-pounding suspense, Peary to the Pole is the definitive account of one man's trek through some of the world's most treacherous terrain, in search of adventure, discovery, and immortality
