Abstract
In August, 1881 Lieutenant Adolphus W. Greely and a team of 25 determined men set out as part of the First International Polar Year to build a research station on Ellesmere Island, 450 miles from the North Pole. The Lady Franklin Bay Expedition began as the most ambitious arctic expedition in United States history, but was destined to descend into a three year journey through a frozen hell - a voyage of forced retreaat, starvation, brewing mutiny and cannibalism. Against all odds, six men survived and returned to Portsmouth, New Hampshire as American heros. (from back of book)
