Description: 
Mikkelsen, an experienced Arctic adventurer, set out in 1909 to prove that Robert Perry's outline of the East Greeland coast was erroneous and presumably self-serving. Iver Iversen, a ship's mechanic with no experience as an explorer, joined the expedition. Months later, the two men found themselves cut off from the world, suffering every imaginable Arctic travail: Mikkelsen's diary was even eaten by a bear. The two retained their sanity-- and their humor-- for three days. This is their harrowing account of survival and companionship.
