About this product
- DescriptionIn the summer of 1984, Anthony Dalton embarked on a near-fatal voyage in a small open boat along the wild rthwest coast of Alaska, attempting a solo transit of the Northwest Passage. His sea quest ran parallel to an arduous relief expedition undertaken in 1897-98, when the officers of the US cutter Bear set out to reach eight whaling ships that were stranded in thick ice, their crews on the verge of starvation. Both journeys are depicted in this captivating adventure tale, and Dalton's gripping description of his encounter with an icy hell explores the irresistible lure of risk and challenge that continues to draw adventurers to the Arctic, a place like other.
- Author BiographyAnthony Dalton is the author of numerous books on maritime history including The Graveyard of the Pacific, The Fur-Trade Fleet, Alone against the Arctic, and Sir John Franklin. He is a fellow of both the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and is past-president of the Canadian Authors Association. He lives in Tsawwassen, British Columbia.
