KIRKUS REVIEW

A new, emended edition of To The North (1934) which has for its introduction high praise from Stefansson, as a topnotch survey of the history of northern exploration. With recent progress in the knowledge of polar importance, this fits even more pertinently today into the enlarged horizons of the modern world, and forms in its coverage, a worthwhile background for special interest. This account of the searches and quests from earliest to present times with airplanes, is completed by appendices, bibliography.
