This was the first and only book I had read on the Greeley Expedition and
was thoroughly captivated until the very end. One of my ancestors, Henry
Biederbick was a survivor of the expedition. As a child I was told that
one of my ancestors went to the North Pole, but I never imagined the
torture he went through until I read the book. Thank you Mr. Guttridge
for sharing his story with me.

Thetis
I have read many books on the subject of The Greely Expedition, but this book is paramount in its detail and accuracy. My great uncle was a volunteer on the Thetis, the ship that rescued the Greely party. My name is Thetis, named for this ship. I knew most of the story, but not in such detail. The book is so well written that, with each word, the reader feels they are actually there.
This book is a must read, it kept me enthralled until the very end.
