Detailed Product Description
London, Frederick Muller Ltd., 1957, 1st edition. 144 pp, 10 drawings. Small bright blue cloth hardcover, internal library rubber stamps and pocket, and handsome, clean and unchipped dust jacket. Near Fine.

The True Book About The North Pole is the hardest to find of Eric Shipton's books to complete a collection. The last time we offered a copy was in 2008. This is Eric Shipton's book for young people about the history of North Pole exploration. It is a companion to his book The True Book About Everest (called Men Against Everest in the USA.) Not in the Shipton six-book collection. 

As this book never had an American edition it has become the most elusive of Shipton's books for American collectors.
