Excellent biography of the Norwegian Arctic hero, whose Farthest North won loyal followers the world around, who was the first white man to cross the Greenland ice pack, who made a science of oceanography. A great man, a great scientist, a great diplomat and statesman, a great world figure. As High Commissioner of Refugees, he established certain standards of handling the problem that are followed today. A fine book, with a wide general market.
