User reviews about the book

  • USS Jeannette

    By ChaosNurse
    Thoroughly researched, this was a fascinating read. I happened to finish the book the night I arrived in Annapolis and found that there is a memorial to the exploration on the grounds of the Naval Academy.
  • Fantastic book!

    By Meatball 2
    I love reading about polar expeditions, and this is one of the very best. Sat up too late, couldn't put it down!
  • Another great work by Mr. Sides

    By Dkinas
    It took me few pages to settle in but when I did I could not put it down.
  • Good read

    By WilksPhD
    Starts ok, a bit slow in the middle, gets strong toward the end. I recommend it for readers interested in emotional, historic adventure stories.
  • In the Kingdom of Ice

    By chuckh48
    This is by far the most incredible survival story I have ever read. It is well researched and documented with colorful accounts of all involved.
  • Fantastic read

    By Phatlanta
    This is one of the best books I've read in years. Similar to Unbroken, the things these me endured would not be believable if it was a fictional tale. It is a page-turner from the start.

    I graduated from the Naval Academy in 1970, having taken thermo, fluids, kinematics, and materials science in Melville Hall. Aside from being a once Chief Engineer of the Navy, I knew little of Melville. Now I know more. This was a captivating telling of a great journey
