In telling the tale of Dutch explorer William Barents, Pitzer masterfully combines a gripping tale of survival with a sweeping history of a great age of exploration. Barents and his crew ventured farther north than any Europeans before and, on their third polar exploration, lost their ship off the frozen coast of Nova Zembla to unforgiving ice. The men would spend the next year fighting off ravenous polar bears, gnawing hunger and endless winter.
