Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Wonders of the Arctic World: A History of All the Researches and Discoveries in the Frozen Regions of the North, From the Earliest Times Paradoxical as it seems, that portion of the globe we inhabit which is most cheerless, dreary and desolate, which is farthest removed from civilization, which produces but little calculated to benefit mankind, which offers no attractions to the tourist, and which has proved the grave of many hardy spirits who have endeavored to explore its dark regions, has been for many generations past a locality of deep and absorbing interest. We allude, of course, to the northern zone or belt of the earth known as the arctic or polar regions. A sort of interest approximating to fascination has always been manifested in this icy region; and at no former period in the world s history has it commanded a greater share of attention than at the present time, when the problem of an open polar sea is apparently nearing its solution. It will be the province of this work to give the reader comprehensive and interesting accounts of the various expeditions sent there in the interest of science generally, and navigation in particular, from the days of the Northmen, in the ninth century, to the present time, with a full history of the Polaris Expedition under the late Captain Charles Francis Hall, and an exhaustive narrative of the six months unparalleled experience of the nineteen human beings, isolated from the world and drifting about at the mercy of the elements, guided alone by the great arm of God. The work is the result of industrious research, and only the most reliable material is used in its production, while the most rigid care is exercised in avoiding the slightest exaggeration.
