Detailed Product Description
London, The Travel Book Club, not dated [circa 1960]. 224 pp. Hardcover with no dust jacket and faded spine, else fine. Near Fine. 

Translated from the Danish by Maurice Michael. 

Two Against the Ice is Danish Arctic explorer Ejnar Mikkelsen's account of his 1909-1912 expedition to recover the journals from 1906-1908 Danish Danmark Expedition to North Greenland. Along with Iver Iverson, Mikkelsen hoped to discover the maps and diaries left behind by Ludvig Mylius-Erichsen, Niels Peter Høeg Hagen, and Jørgen Brønlund, whose achievements included disproving Robert Peary's proposed coastline and charted a new, revised coastal map. After successfully recovering these materials as well as Mylius-Erichsen's body, Mikkelsen and Iverson returned to their camp on Shannon Island, only to find that their crew had left. Mikkelsen and Iverson remained stranded on the island for two winters before being rescued.
