Arctic Experiences: Aboard the Doomed Polaris Expedition and Six Months Adrift on an Ice-Floe by George E. Tyson

In 1871 veteran navigator George Emory Tyson joined the first American expedition to explore the North Pole, but by August 1872, after the mysterious death of the Polaris leader, Charles Francis Hall, the ice pack in which the ship was travelling began to break up. Nineteen crew members, including Tyson, were stranded on an ice-floe when the ship abandoned them. They were not rescued until April 30, 1873. Unavailable for nearly a century, Arctic Experiences is the fierce, harrowing chronicle of Tysons incredible feat of endurance and survival.
