A wild epic journey by an American with two Inuit companions, struggling to be the first humans to reach the North Pole. After reaching the Pole, the struggle continued with a year-long, near death journey back to civilization, without supplies, competing with animals of the wild without defensive weapons, crossing a shifting sea of ice and struggling for life during the long winter night.
Listen as Dr. Frederick Albert Cook, a respected physician and experienced explorer, tells how he became the first man to reach the North Pole on April 21, 1908 and how, upon his return to civilization, he faced the wrath of a powerful, unbelieving rival determined to destroy his reputation.

Before reading this book I thought Cook was a fraudster. Now I see how early America could be easily controlled by the media. What was done to Cook and what is still being doing to him is a disgrace. He went to and reached the North Pole first. This is his account. A must read for people fascinated with exploring new frontiers!
