An adventurer who stands alongside polar explorer Ernest Shackleton, Fridtjof Nansen contributed tremendous amounts of new information to our knowledge about the Polar Arctic. At a time when the North Pole was still undiscovered territory, he attempted the journey in a way most experts thought mad: Nansen purposefully locked his ship in ice for three years in order to float northward along the currents.

Although geared toward younger readers, this is a richly illustrated account with many historic photographs which celebrates the legacy of an extraordinary adventurer who pushed the boundaries of human exploration to further science into the twentieth century.
