    An interesting account of the difficulties and eventual progress of Arctic exploration, finding a northerndirect route to other parts of the world The efforts were monumental and with the advance of technology it became easier to decrease the danger, if only a little.

    This is an excellent overview of the known major forays into the Arctic most of which took place during the search for the Northwest Passage I ve read other works that focus in greater detail on specific expeditions, rendering these bare bones retellings somewhat lacking by comparison although that s hardly the author s fault, since an overview is his intention, after all I d say if you re just starting with your Arctic reading, start here.

    I enjoyed reading this book It s filled with interesting history about men who bravely explored the most hostel region of our planet I was amazed on how many of them went on several trips to discover a shorter route for shipping Even today it s a risk, but with global warming it is becomingpossible for ships to pass through the northern passage The author reminds us of the impact this will have on the fragile ego system in the Arctic I would recommend reading this book.

    Quite an interesting read about the perils and struggles of trying to figure out the Arctic in the early days of exploration Can drag on a little bit in parts, but for the most part it s definitely a factual and informative book.
