Porter was twenty-one years old and a student at MIT when, in 1892, the desire for arctic exploration first seized him. He spent the following eighteen years in and around the territories of the North Pole region, including Greenland, Franz Joseph Land, northern British Columbia, and Labrador. On his expeditions, he served principally as astronomer, general scientist, surveyor and mapper, and, most significantly as artist. The author illustrated his manuscript with dozens of exquisitely beautiful pencil sketches and watercolors of the arctic landscapes, animals and the Eskimos.
