A History of Arctic Exploration: Discovery, Adventure & Endurance

by Nuriminen, Juya & Matti Lainema

CAD $77.95

In one volume, this account of 2,500 years of Arctic exploration highlights the vessels, navigation, and cartographic history, as well as the almost unbelievable, but true stories of the explorers. Drawing on many previously unseen charts, artworks and maps, the book begins with the earliest seafarers of antiquity, and the great naval and mercantile voyages in search of the Northwest and Northeast Passages, to the conquest of the North Pole and beyond.
