Hunters and Hunting, in the Arctic (Classic Reprint)

Duke of Orleans

Excerpt from Hunters and Hunting, in the Arctic I considered an account of my first two expeditions to the Arctic regions worthy of publication, because each was interesting in its own way. Exceptionally favourable conditions attended the first, permitting us to cross the Greenland ice-belt at 76 latitude, a region up to that time deemed impassable, and to attain, in the the French Islands, never before reached even with sledges.
