Read full description of the books Fatal North: Adventure and Survival Aboard USS Polaris, the First U S Expedition to the North Pole:

I'm embarrassed to admit how long this book has been in my TBR pile. It didn't deserve that. It was great! Halfway through I found myself binge-reading in the middle of the night like a teenager with a new dystopia series. It's the true story of the 1870s era American quest to find the North Pole. The conflict and suspense created by staggering human incompetence paired with Mother Nature's abject domination of us lowly human beings rivals anything Michael Crichton ever came up with. I'd love to see this made into a mini-series. The History Channel wouldn't have to gussy it up with fictional drama. We've got action, adventure, pride, greed, sloth, envy, gluttony, lust, theft, murder - did I leave out any sins? Lest you be too put off, there's also bravery and heroics on the part of a few to keep it from being a complete buzzkill. If you have someone you're trying to convince that history is NOT boring, buy them this book.
