Reviews


"A terrifically accessible account of this wide-eyed, extraordinarily intrepid adventurer's thrilling and chilling exploits." --Kirkus

"McGoogan's fascinating biography focuses on a neglected figure from the early era of polar exploration . . . With his access to previously unknown Kane logbooks, McGoogan makes an impressive case for the bravery and importance of the explorer who first identified the Greenland ice sheet." --Publishers Weekly "An incredible and frightening journey." --Booklist "McGoogan frames this exciting biography in terms of the mythological concepts of the hero and the transformative quest. Highly recommended." --Library Journal
