Abstract:

Recreates the triumph and scandal of the U.S. Exploring Expedition of 1838-1842, which discovered Antarctica, surveyed the treacherous Columbia River, and charted dozens of newly discovered islands across the Pacific. But along the way, twenty-eight men died and two ships were lost, and the expedition ended with a series of sensational courts-martial that pitted the expedition's controversial leader, Lt. Charles Wilkes, against almost every officer under his command.
