Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the Hundred Best Books of Twentieth-Century Exploration"
-- The Explorer's Club


"Readers will be amazed and amused by the way the two explorers keep their spirits about them and downplay the terrifying dangers as though it were all in good fun. Fascinating and fun reading." 
-- Booklist


"Mikkelsen is an artisan of cold places, and if his labors are mighty and consuming, they are also of love." 
-- Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Ejnar Mikkelsen (1880-1971) was a veteran of expeditions to Arctic Greenland, Siberia, and Alaska before directing the ill-fated Alabama expedition. Following that ordeal, Mikkelsen continued to lead expeditions to the "earthly paradise" of Greenland in 1925 and 1932. He made his final trip to that same stretch of inhospitable coast in 1964; by this time Greenlanders were addressing him affectionately as “Grandfather.” Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is a Danish actor and producer who co-adapted Mikkelsen’s classic Arctic survival story into the Netflix feature film in which he also stars. Widely known for his work on Game of Thrones, Coster-Waldau is a UNDP Goodwill Ambassador, drawing public attention to issues such as gender equality and climate change.
