About this title:

Synopsis: It began as President Ulysses S. Grant's bid for international glory after the Civil War?America's first attempt to reach the North Pole. It ended with Captain Charles Hall's death under suspicious circumstances, dissension among sailors, scientists, and explorers, the ship's abandonment and eventual sinking. Then came a brutal struggle for survival by thirty-three men, women and children, stranded on the polar ice?and two dramatic rescues by whaling ships. When news of the disastrous expedition and accusations of murder reached Washington D.C., it led to a nationwide scandal, an official investigation, and a government cover-up. The mystery of the captain's death remained unsolved for nearly 100 years. But when Charles Hall's frozen grave in northern Greenland was opened, and hair and fingernail samples were retrieved, forensic scientists were finally able to reach a shocking conclusion. Now, telling the complete story for the first time, #1 New York Times bestselling author Bruce Henderson?whose works have been praised as "compelling" (Los Angeles Times Book Review) and "compulsively readable" (San Francisco Examiner)?has researched original transcripts of the U.S. Navy inquests, personal papers of Captain Hall, autopsy and forensic reports relating to the century-old crime, the ship's original log, personal journals kept by crewmen, and hero-survivor George Tyson's diary and family papers to bring to life one of the most mysterious tragedies of American arctic exploration.

About the Author: Bruce Henderson is the author or coauthor of more than twenty nonfiction books, including #1 New York Times bestseller AND THE SEA WILL TELL, a true story of murder on a South Seas island, and TRUE NORTH:MURDER AND SURVIVAL ON THE FIRST NORTH POLE EXPEDITION, winner of a national book award from the American Society of Journalists and Authors.
