A handsome first edition/first printing in Fine condition in alike dustjacket, SIGNED by Author Jennifer Niven directly on title page.

Based on 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. M. C. S Karluck in 1913 and 1914. 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.
