In September of 1893, Norwegian zoologist Fridtjof Nansen and a crew manned the schooner Fram, intending to drift, frozen in the Arctic pack-ice, to the North Pole. When it became clear that they would miss the pole, Nansen and his companion Hjalmar Johansen struck off by themselves. Racing the shrinking pack-ice, they attempted, by dog-sled, to go "farthest north." They survived a winter in a moss hut eating walruses and polar bears, and the public assumed they were dead. In the spring of 1896, after three years of trekking, and having made it to within four degrees of the pole, they returned to safety. Nansen's narrative stands with the best writing on polar exploration

"Nansen, one of the most significant figures in the history of Arctic exploration was originally a naturalist. He decided in 1888 to attempt the crossing of Greenland, and with five companions, including Otto Sverdrup, set off in June of that year. The crossing, by small boat, ski and sledge, achieved many important scientific objectives, including meteorological observations, as well as illustrating the ideal methods of Arctic travel. His most important achievements were on the Fram Expedition of 1893-96. He established the nature and drift of the Arctic Ice-pack, having deliberately allowed the ship, built to his own design, to be frozen into the ice. During the expedition, Nansen, with one companion and 3 dog sledges, achieved the highest latitude yet attained (86o14')."--Abebooks website

86 editions published between 1897 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"(...) Welchen Wert hätte das Leben ohne seine Träume?" Fridtjof Nansen Er ist einer der ungewöhnlichsten Forschungsreisenden seiner Zeit, der sich nicht allein durch seine Entdeckungsfahrten einen Namen macht: Fridtjof Nansen geht als ruhmreicher Polarforscher, Zoologe, Philanthrop und internationaler Staatsmann in die Geschichte ein. Im Jahr 1893 bricht er zu jener kühnen Expedition auf, die ihn über Nacht weit über die Grenzen seines Landes hinaus bekannt machen sollte: der Eroberung des Nordpols. Nansens Arktisexpedition dauert mehr als drei Jahre, nach deren Ablauf der Norweger in die Heimat zurückkehrt, ohne den Nordpol je betreten zu haben. Das autobiographische Zeugnis dieser Unternehmung, das den Leser durch die Ehrlichkeit und den kompromisslosen Mut seines Verfassers besticht, dokumentiert die einzelnen Stationen der Exkursion auf packende, in ihrer Intensität schmerzlich ergreifenden Weise: die Verfehlung des Nordpols mit dem Schiff, Nansens Entschluss, das ewige Eis mit Hundeschlitten zu durchqueren und den Nordpol auf Schneeschuhen zu erreichen, der Abbruch der Expedition 450 Kilometer vor dem Ziel und der Rückweg zur Fram, der zum nackten Überlebenskampf gegen Eisbärattacken, Stürzen ins Meer und die unerbittliche arktische Kälte wird . Fridtjof Nansen (1861-1930), norwegischer Polarforscher und Zoologe, gehört zu den bedeutendsten Entdeckungsreisenden der Geschichte. Getrieben von einem leidenschaftlichen Forschergeist und einer unergründlichen Sehnsucht brach er immer wieder in arktische Gefilde auf. Nach der Rückkehr von seiner epochalen Polarexpedition schrieb er seine Erlebnisse nieder und begann in der Folgezeit als Politiker und Diplomat eine zweite Karriere. Für sein aussergewöhnliches humanitäres Engagement u.a. bei der Rückführung von Kriegsgefangenen nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg erhielt er 1922 den Friedensnobelpreis
