Summary
"Impressive in its scope and scholarship, this book presents the first comprehensive and authoritative account of the storied Canadian Arctic Expedition and the personal animosity of its co-leaders: the intrepid explorer/ethnologist Vilhjalmur Stefansson and the respected scientist Rudolph Anderson. The volume details the expedition's successes and tragedies, including the discovery of islands never before mapped and the sinking of the flagship Karluk."--pub. desc
