The volume details the expeditions successes and tragedies, including the discovery of islands never before mapped and the sinking of the flagship Karluk. After 90 years, all the elements of this important and compelling story have finally been woven into a single volume. It is long overdue. The book includes 84 illustrations and maps, a detailed bibliography, and several appendices.The author is uniquely qualified to tell this story. His father was Diamond Jenness, a scientist on the expedition, and he knew or met seven other expedition members, including both Stefansson and Anderson.
