Description
In June of 1871, navigator George E. Tyson and the Polaris sailed forth from New York to pursue an American dream—to be the first to explore the North Pole. As these selections from Tyson's journal demonstrate, the voyage was doomed from the start by impassable ice floes, dissension among the crew, and the mysterious poisoning of the captain. During the winter, Tyson and half the crew found themselves stranded on the Arctic ice for six months, half-mad with starvation and incapable of reconnecting with their ship. This edition includes original engravings of the explorers and their findings, charts and maps of their journey, and a new introduction by Peter Stark.
