Farthest North: The Epic Adventure of a Visionary Explorer
For someone like me who loves tales of early polar exploration and adventure, it's a 'must read.' It's about 700 pages of Nansen's day-by-day diary of three years drifing near the North Pole. Many probably would find it incredibly boring. If survival among the polar bears, walrus' and -40F ice turn you on. . .it's a wonderful fireside read for you!

This epic story about drifting in the ice pack is a good book and well written, but gets a little tedious after hundreds of pages about cold, ice and snow.

This is a long and hard read, with almost day by day coverage of nearly five years out on the Arctic ice.

But the fact that this is a true story of Nansen's incredible Arctic expedition keeps you going. No one could dream up this adventure.

Also, the realistic portrayal of life on the Arctic ice let's you experience an environment few will ever get to visit in real life.

A very long and arduous read, only for seasoned adventure readers. But if you take on the challenge, you will be well rewarded.

2 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Perennial Student on June 29, 2009
Format: Paperback
The book was in excellent condition (as reported in the seller's description), and was priced considerably below other copies I found online.
I was also impressed with how quickly the book arrived, which was great since I was on a gift-giving deadline.
One thing I didn't expect: the book is REALLY LONG, like 500 pages, so is a little large to carry around as vacation reading.
