The noose of laurels : Robert E. Peary and the race to the North Pole by Wally Herbert( Book )

7 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who was the first man to stand on top of the world? Most polar historians grant that honor to Robert E. Peary who, after long and brilliant polar career, allegedly reached the North Pole on April 6th, 1909. Long debated, but never proven or disproven, Peary's ultimate achievement seemed destined to remain forever an enigma unenlightened by first-hand information. The Noose of Laurels changes that. Here, Wally Herbert, one of the finest polar explorers of our time, takes on the task of analyzing Peary's achievements. He is uniquely capable to do so, as he is the first polar traveler ever to assess the records and claims of Peary and his chief rival, Dr. Frederick Cook. Wally Herbert received unprecedented cooperation for this book from both the Peary family and the National Geographic Society, the custodians of the Peary Archives. Most important, he was the first man in seventy-five years to be granted access to the famous "Peary Diary," Peary's journal from that fateful expedition of 1909. - Jacket flap

Across the Arctic Ocean : original photographs from the last great polar journey by Wally Herbert( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unparalleled look at the first surface crossing of the Arctic Ocean, and probably the first expedition to reach the North Pole by surface travel, through the words and images of the man who led it. On February 21, 1968, Wally Herbert and his team of three companions and forty huskies set out from Point Barrow, Alaska, embarking on a route that would take them some 3,800 miles over sixteen months, across the North Pole and the frozen Arctic Ocean via its longest axis. Though their achievement was overshadowed by the Apollo moon landing, it stands today as one of the greatest expeditions of all time. Featuring an impressive team of expert commentators and illustrated with stunning photographs, this exceptional photography book is an engrossing firsthand record of an astonishing journey--one that will probably never be repeated. The Arctic Ocean as a whole is attracting worldwide attention because of global warming, the shrinking ice cap, the opening up of new northerly trade routes, and competition between nations for potentially vast untapped mineral resources. Across the Arctic Ocean is therefore a truly timely account of the last great frontier in a rapidly changing world and will appeal to all those interested in exploration, polar science, the great outdoors, and human endeavor. 157 illustrations, 86 in color
