One of the most amazing accounts of an arctic expedition I've read. The poor crew's experience is nightmarish. The story's a bit long but utterly engrossing and well worth the time spent for anyone who's even a little curious in early arctic voyages. I had hoped for a better outcome for the Jeannette, but there were survivors though it came at a huge price. The tale is haunting. Highlights are the in-depth character backgrounds, attention to detail (all those surviving records!), and the various photos and maps.
