A selection of heart-stiring narratives which relate the difficulties and perils attendant on the exploration of the Inland Ice of Greenland. Fridtjof Nansen made the first crossing of Greenland in 1888. Robert Peary attempted his crossing in 1886 reaching a higher altitude, at a more northerly latitude, than any previous explorer. His second attempt, in 1891-92, achieved a longer crossing than that of Nansen. Introduction by Clements Markham, President of the Royal Geographic Society.
