Detailed Product Description
Canada, McGill-Queen's University Press, 2008. 305 pp, b/w and color photos. Used softcover. Near Fine to Fine.

A fascinating account of life on Robert E. Peary's 1908-09 North Pole Expedition. MacMillan relied on the journal he kept during the expedition to provide an intimate view of the day-to-day activities and relationships with other members of the party, detailing how he learned to drive dog teams, camp in sub-zero temperatures, and travel safely across the ice-covered Polar Sea.

One of the great explorers who caused this period to be called the Heroic Age of Exploration. The Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration was an era in the exploration of the continent of Antarctica which began at the end of the 19th century, and ended after the First World War; the Shackleton–Rowett Expedition of 1921–1922 is often cited by historians as the dividing line between the "Heroic" and "Mechanical" ages. During this period the South Pole was first reached, and much of the continent's coastline was discovered and mapped, and significant areas of its interior were explored.
