A fascinating story of polar exploration--then and now--by a scientist who traveled from Murmansk to Siberia aboard the first ship ever to cross directly over the North Pole. Fisher re-creates the epic 1991 voyage aboard the Russian nuclear-powered ice-breaker Sovetsky Soyuz as he chronicles what befell previous expeditions from Pytheas of Massaliato Peary, Cook, and Richard Byrd. Photographs. Frontispiece map.
