Editorial Reviews:

Wife of self-proclaimed North Pole discoverer Robert Edwin Peary, Josephine Peary was the first white woman to take part in an Artic exploration. Unavailable for nearly a century, this book is her account of Peary's 1891-92 expedition, of her adventurous experiences and cultural encounters, and of her extraordinary treks across the world's upper reaches. This rare, firsthand account--the only Arctic memoir composed by a woman--provides an accurate, elaborate picture of Arctic geography and Inuit culture.

Summary: Ruined with anti-Peary intro
Comment: This marvelous Josephine Peary classic of women's exploration is a public domain work that anyone may reprint. This facsimile version has poorly rendered photos and a depressing introduction. Josephine was a fearless pioneer with her own side arm and a Winchester rifle to hunt even 4,000-pound walrus! She tirelessly worked with the Eskimo women learning their language and organizing the sewing of clothing from furs for her husband's expedition. However, this "new" introduction is overly long, overly negative, and reveals an agenda with the events 17 years later when Peary reached the North Pole. Skip the intro! But do enjoy Josephine's story that is intelligent, detailed, and very nicely written.
