*"A gripping account of a disastrous 1879 American expedition to find the North Pole. Finding the pole, "the world's greatest mystery," so captured the public's imagination that more than 1,200 men applied for the 24 positions as sailors. The authors skillfully incorporate quotes from journals, letters, and official documents. Vivid language and narrative techniques such as cliffhangers maximize the drama, while well-chosen anecdotes convey the personalities. Highly appealing narrative nonfiction for anyone who loves true adventure." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review
*"Extensively researched and illustrated with engravings and paintings contemporary to the 1879 Arctic voyage of the Jeannette, (this) book presents an exemplary example of how to piece together an intriguing story from a variety of sources. Readers of historical adventure will be drawn to the story and appreciate the crew's bravery." ― Booklist, starred review
"Drawing heavily on the journals of the crew of the U.S.S. Jeanette, the Wallaces recount in riveting prose the ship's ill-fated, two-year voyage (1879-1881) in search of warm waters then thought to surround the North Pole. Abundant archival illustrations, bibliography, and source notes bolster this gripping, accessible account." ― Publishers Weekly
