Description
"We did not all come back," writes seafarer Robert Bartlett (18751946) in his firsthand account of the extraordinary adventure of the Karluk, the flagship of Canadian explorer Vilhjalmar Steffanson's Arctic expedition of 1913. When the Karluk became trapped in the ice, Steffanson abandoned Captain Bartlett and his crew, nearly half of whom perished before the ordeal ended. Accompanied by one Inuit, Bartlett made the treacherous journey across the ice to Siberia to find help, and returned with rescuers to collect the survivors.

"Bartlett tells his story with an earnestness that comes only from one who has fought with the stern forces of nature in the frozen seas. Yet it is touched here and there with a humor that lightens the grim perils of the Arctic."NYTimes
