In 1871 veteran navigator George Emory Tyson joined the first American expedition to explore the North Pole, but by August 1872, after the mysterious death of the Polaris' leader, Charles Francis Hall, the ice pack in which the ship was travelling began to break up. Nineteen crew members, including Tyson, were stranded on an ice-floe when the ship abandoned them.

They were not rescued until April 30, 1873. Unavailable for nearly a century, Arctic Experiences is the fierce, harrowing chronicle of Tyson's incredible feat of endurance and survival.

Republication of this almost forgotten book is long overdue.--Chauncey C. Loomis, author of " Weird and Tragic Shores: The Story of Charles Francis Hall, Explorer" [Tyson's] is a remarkable and compelling account of the series of adventures and misadventures collectively known as the Polaris expedition.--Edward E. Leslie, author of Desperate Journeys, Abandoned Souls: True Stories of Castaways and other Survivors
