Replete with interesting details on the preparation of the expedition and its daily routine, it remains a lively account written in a direct style, of one of the longest self-supporting dog-sledge expeditions. In 1934 Martin Lindsay, gold medallist of the French Geographical Society, and his gallant party of three men made a record Arctic journey of 1,200 miles, traversing without injury, the Greenland ice-cap, and eventually after many trials and tribulations, reaching the coast at the end of 103 days of sledging, with two and a half days of food left in hand.
