Fredrik Hjalmar Johansen (1867-1913) was a Norwegian Polar explorer. He accompanied Nansen on the Fram Expedition of 1893-6 and took part in a number of explorations of the Svalbard archipelago. He later participated in Roald Amundsen's expedition to the South Pole in 1910-12, although he was written out of the official history following a bitter dispute with Amundsen. Johansen's account of Nansen's Fram Expedition appeared in Norwegian in 1898, and this English translation was published the following year. It describes Nansen's attempt to drift north in a deliberately ice-bound ship and then ski to the North Pole, and reveals the dangers and challenges faced by the crew during their three-year journey. Although they did not reach the Pole, they set a new furthest-north record that stood for several years. Nansen's own account of the expedition, Farthest North, is also available as part of the Cambridge Library Collection.

Originally published in 1981 and long out of print, this dual autobiography covers five unforgettable decades of the New York sporting life from 1915 to 1965. Told initially from the point of view of Frank Graham, premier sportswriter for The New York Sun, A Farewell to Heroes also includes the chronicles of Frank, Jr., who picks up the narrative as he becomes a sports journalist in his own right. Frank Graham, Sr., was a self-taught writer known for his uncanny ability to capture the high drama of a game-winning play or the color of a fight mob's conversation in spare, straightforward prose. As a reporter, he covered the rough-and-tumble Giants of John McGraw's day and continued through boxing's greatest era, spanning the reigns of Jack Dempsey and Joe Louis. As the younger Frank tells more of the story, we watch Lou Gehrig take Babe Ruth's place as the Yankees' star and then trace his glorious career to its tragic conclusion. We see firsthand the legendary Branch Rickey and Jackie Robinson and boxing's brief but golden age on television in the 1950s. Aided by sixteen photographs and preserving the most masterful of his father's writing while adding to it the best of his own, Frank Graham, Jr., has given the sports fan A Farewell to Heroes, perhaps the ultimate sports reminiscence of a time when the romance of sport gave life a golden hue, when heroes still roamed the earth. -In what he calls this 'kind of dual autobiography, ' he is his father's son, having learned to look and listen as his father did and still go his own way, - says W. C. Heinz, longtime sportswriter for The New York Sun, in his new foreword to this paperback edition.

Robert Falcon Scott?s 1901?4 expedition to the Antarctic was a landmark event in the history of Antarctic exploration, creating a sensation comparable to the Arctic efforts of the American Robert E. Peary. Scott?s initial expedition was also the first step toward the dramatic race to the South Pole in 1912, which resulted in the tragic deaths of Scott and his companions. Since then Scott?s reputation has vacillated between two extremes: Was he a martyred hero, the beau ideal of a brave and selfless explorer, or a bumbling fool whose mistakes killed him and his entire party?øPilgrims on the Ice goes beyond the personality of Scott to remove the first expedition from the shadow of the second, to study objectively its purpose, its composition, and its real accomplishments. This Bison Books edition includes a new preface by the author.

In 1879 the USS Jeanette set sail from San Francisco to cheering crowds and a frenzy of publicity. The ship and its crew, captained by the heroic George De Long, were heading for glory and the last unmapped area of the globe: the North Pole. But it was not long before the Jeanette was trapped in crushing pack ice. Amid the rush of water and the shrieks of breaking wooden boards, the crew found themselves marooned a thousand miles north of Siberia with only the barest supplies, facing a seemingly impossible trek across the endless ice. Battling everything from snow blindness and polar bears to ferocious storms and frosty labyrinths, the expedition battled madness and starvation as they desperately strove for survival. With twists and turns worthy of a thriller, In the Kingdom of Ice is a spellbinding tale of heroism and determination in the most unforgiving territory on Earth.

After thirty six years of escorting active adults, (often referred to as Senior Citizens”), on numerous destinations throughout the world, including day trips or short “getaways”, throughout Washington State or British Columbia, I have been encouraged to “Write a Book”. Now I know what you’re thinking: “Not another boring travel book”. So, what I intend to do is to share some of the experiences my wife, Diane and I have experienced, hoping you will enjoy the journey with us. Therefore I dedicate this book to Diane, who has been the spark that ignited many of the ideas that culminated in making so many dreams come true for hundreds of people in many different ways. This was more than a “job” for us, but rather a “calling” that resulted in us forming “DON-DIANE FUNTOURS” which ultimately became our “Travel Family”. If you are one of our “Travel Family”, or have been, we hope you will relive a memory or two. If you are wondering what this is all about, I thank you for reading, and hope you will be rewarded with a smile, or a laugh as you discover for the first time that being on an escorted tour can reward you with much more than a few days or weeks exploring a new or revisited place, but perhaps be, “Just what the doctor ordered” as you have fun and “let go”, opening up yourselves to new people, places events, and yes, food! Come with me as we visit our friends throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, Mexico, South America, New Guinea, Turkey, the Orient, United States, Africa, Canada, numerous cruises on a variety of ships sizes, and so much more! I hope you will discover the fun of travel as you enrich your own journey in life!
