In the Kingdom of Ice
by Sides, Hampton
In the summer of 1879, Captain George Washington De Long and a crew of 32 set sail on the USS "Jeanette" for the Arctic, in an attempt to reach the North Pole. Two years later, the "Jeanette" was crushed by ice, resulting in her loss. In a desperate situation, a thousand miles north of Siberia, few of the crew were able to survive. Author Hampton Sides explores this brutal and amazing story.
