[EAN: 9780333779606], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: MacMillan, London], A GRAPHIC AND HORRIFIC ACCOUNT OF THE TRAGIC 1913 EXPLORATION VOYAGE KARLUK IN SEARCH LOST CONTINENT UNDER ARCTIC ICE., Jacket, the diaries, records, and journals of William Laird McKinley, the Karluk's magnetician and meteorologist, Jennifer Niven lets the reader witness first hand the ill-fated Arctic expedtion of the H. A graphic and horrific account of the tragic 1913 exploration voyage of the Karluk in search of a Lost Continent under the Arctic Ice. The Karluk set out in 1913 in search of an undiscovered continent, with the largest scientific staff ever sent into the Arctic. Soon after, winter had begun, they were blown off course by polar storms, the ship became imprisoned in ice, and the expedition was abandoned by its leader. Hundreds of miles from civilization, the castaways had no choice but to find solid ground as they struggled against starvation, snow blindness, disease and exposure. It had been McKinley's life-long dream to set the record straight, give credit where credit was due, by telling the story of an early Arctic winter which caused the Karluk to become encased in ice, dooming its crew and scientific staff to horrific living conditions before being rescued over a year later.The Karluk was one 3 ships. It became ice bound; Stefasson left the ship for help. Of the 25 remaining aboard, 12 manage to survive a near 12 month ordeal. Drawing from first hand diary accounts, original documents, news reports, and interviews descendants of expedition members and the one living survivor, this is their story --- a tale of adventure and exploration, of cowardice and heroism, of brutality and hardship, of betrayal and redemption.
