Last year I read North by Roger Hubank, a fictional account of the Greely expedition. Afterwards, I wanted to read an historical account of the Greeley expedition. In this book, I learned more about problems with the first two relief attempts. I liked Guttridge's detailed end notes describing the sources from institutions such as the National Archives and the Library of Congress.

Ghosts of Cape Sabine is an extraordinary, true Arctic drama of man against nature and man against man. Twenty-five men went North and only six returned alive.
