From the cover: “A first-hand account from the leaders of the German Greenland Expeditions of 1930-31-32. Alfred Wegener, the leader of the 1930 Expedition, perished in attempting the crossing of Greenland. A further Expedition, under the leadership of Alfred Wegener’s brother set out in the following year with the object of ascertaining the fate and if possible accomplishing the rescue of Alfred Wegener. The rescue proved too late but the book contains an admirable account of the long sojourn of the rescue party on the Greenland ice-cap and much material from Alfred Wegener’s diaries.
The scientific results are described in a form suitable for the general reader and various members of the Expedition contribute to the book. The whole makes up one of the best recent books of Arctic travel. It is a workmanlike and stimulating book.”
