"This is an unvarnished tale of a thousand consecutive days spent in the Arctic, printed almost word for word as it was written - while the facts and impressions were fresh in my memory--in our hut, or tent, when on sledging and boating journeys in Franz-Josef Land. It is a simple, true account and statement of facts incident to our life and work there - plain facts, penned by a plain man." From the author's note

A very important title in early arctic exploration.
