This large-format work is filled with rare illustrations, it tells stories of triumph and tragedy in the search for the fabled NW Passage and the race for the North Pole. Along with familiar explorers, including Captain Cook, Amundsen, and Byrd, it introduces readers to the men behind the names on the map, such as Barents and Bering, as well as unfamiliar but equally important navigators, such as Franklin, Cheluskin, and Nordenskiold. This book weighs six pounds.
