British explorer Jackson spent years exploring the Arctic regions. This is his account of a 3000-mile sledge journey across the frozen tundra of Siberia in 1893, in winter. The primary objective of this expedition was to test a variety of equipment, clothing and food under Arctic winter conditions. The results would be used in a more prolonged and difficult journey which was being contemplated to the unknown area north of Franz Josef Land. Following his return from this successful trip he was given command of the Jackson-Harmsworth Expedition (1894-97) for just that purpose. (See also Jackson’s ‘A Thousand Days in the Arctic, #25775.)
