John Ross was a notable British explorer known for his Arctic and Antarctic explorations. After a brief, but successful voyage to the north in 1818, Ross and his crew undertook a more extensive second Arctic expedition in 1829. It was on this four year adventure that Ross encountered Inuit tribes, reached the true North Magnetic Pole, charted new islands, and noted impressive geographical and meteorological phenomena.

 

According to Field,

“wonderfully interesting narrative of human endurance, triumphing over the most awful peril and suffering. The sumptuous printing which makes every page a picture has even its luxury enhanced by the splendid steel engravings and lithographs. The former are so excellent as to be worthy of preservation as gems of art.”
