One thought on “Robert E. Peary

  1. Having done some reading about Antarctic exploration, I decided to look at the north pole too.

    I almost took this book back to the library without reading it. My free subscription to Smithsonian arrived the other day with an article on Cook vs. Peary and the question of who made it to the pole first. After reading that article, my opinion of Peary was low enough that I didn’t want to read a book that might praise him. But, that sentiment came from prejudice, so I gave this book a try.
