1 post | 1 read
In the years following the Civil War, Arctic fever gripped the American public, fueled by myths of a fertile, tropical sea at the top of the world. Several explorers attempted to find a route to the North Pole, but none succeeded. Bound by Ice follows the journey of George Washington De Long and the crew of the USSJeannette, who departed San Francisco in the summer of 1879 hoping to find a route to the North Pole. However, in mid-September the ship became locked in ice north of Siberia and drifted for nearly two years before it was crushed by ice and sank. De Long and his men escaped the ship and began a treacherous journey in extreme polar conditions in an attempt to reach civilization. Manyincluding De Longdid not survive. A riveting true-life adventure, Bound by Ice includes excerpts from De Longs extensive journals, which were recovered with his body; newspapers from the time; and photos and sketches by the men on the expedition. The title also includes an epilogue, authors note, bibliography, source notes, and index.

I just recently ordered this nonfiction book for my class library. It is a fairly quick read that details an attempt to reach the North Pole by George De Long, captain of the Jeannette. After leaving Alaska and a year spent trapped in the ice, the ship sinks, and it becomes a survival story as the crew heads to Siberia over ice and by boat. It includes excerpts from journals, illustrations, and photos of artifacts.
