Nobile's account of the 1928 flight of the airship Italia in which he reached the North Pole. After turning south they ran into a storm and crashed on the ice. Ten crewmen were thrown onto the ice and six disappeared when the lightened airship surged skyward and disappeared. After a month-long ordeal of privation rescue arrived. These events were the basis for the movie ‘The Red Tent’.
