Peary's Arctic Quest: Untold Stories from Robert E. Peary’s North Pole Expeditions

Product Description

By Susan Kaplan, Professor of Anthropology, Director of Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center,
and Genevieve LeMoine, Curator/Registrar of Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center

This richly illustrated book takes a different angle on Robert E. Peary’s North Pole expedition. By shifting the focus away from the unanswerable question of whether he truly reached 90º North Latitude, the authors shed light on equally important stories and discoveries that arose as a result of the infamous expedition. Peary's Arctic Quest ventures beyond the well-cited story of Peary’s expedition and uncovers the truth about race relations, womens’ scientific contributions, and climate change that are still relevant today. Readers will gain a greater appreciation for Peary’s methodical and creative mind, the Inughuit’s significant contributions to Arctic exploration, and the impact of Western expedition activity on the Inughuit community. The volume will also feature artifacts, drawings, and historic photographs with informative captions to tell little-known stories about Peary’s 1908-1909 North Pole expedition.
