Under a Pole Star

Stef Penney

As the race is on to map the unexplored Polar regions, beautiful scenery and a passionate love affair form the background against which the motives and methods of the explorers cause dangerous, even tragica, confrontations. An epic read indeed.

Extract

'We were all competitive, Mr Crane. Explorers may dress their ambitions in patriotic or scientific garb, but in the end, it tends to come down to personal glory. Well ... or escape. Glory or escape.'
