Anthony Brandts North Pole: A Narrative History is a nice anthology featuring excerpts from many of the major expeditions to the Arctic with essays from the explorers who searched for the fabled Northwest Passage, for each other and for the North Pole.

The passages written by the explorers themselves are nicely linked together by Brandts narrative, making this very readable.So much of the book depends on the journals, letters and books of the explorers themselves that the quality of the writing varies.

Some stories are incredibly interesting (particularly John Richardsons story, which is one I hadnt read before) while others are more difficult to read through.Overall, the book is an interesting collection of North Pole stories.
