Frederick A. Cook (1865-1940)was a physician, anthropologist, author and explorer. The first American to explore both Polar regions, he was part of Robert E. Peary's North Greenland Expedition in 1891-92, was credited with saving the Belgian Antarctic Expedition in 1897-99, led a relief expedition for Peary and two others in Greenland and mounted his North Polar Expedition in 1907-09. He is credited by many as the fierst to reach and describe the conditions at the North Pole in 1908. He was founder of the Arctic Club and the American Alpine Club and third president of the Explorers Club.Review:
"expaned to include accounts by two of Cook's climbing companions and a description of the 1994 expedition, corroborating Cook's account." -- Seattle Times
