This review is from: The Ice Balloon: S. A. Andree and the Heroic Age of Arctic Exploration (Kindle Edition)
The book certainly spends time with other stories and various asides. Some work better than others. But most are fascinating in and of themselves and truly contribute to the context and the building energy of the read. I could not put this down. Great story. Well written. Haunting end.
