It is the story of a journey without motive - beyond the joy of traveling itself, which the author vividly communicates to the armchair traveler who rides with him through the silence of Arctic plateaus, the solitudes of the Swedish forests, across treacherous marshes and moors in a land of legendary giants, trolls, and hobgoblins." - from the dj.

218 BULL, Colin Innocents in the Arctic : The 1951 Spitsbergen Expedition. First Edition in dustjacket. Signed
University of Alaska Press, Fairbanks, 2005, ISBN:1889963739 
BULL, Colin. Innocents in the Arctic : The 1951 Spitsbergen Expedition. Fairbanks : University of Alaska Press, (2005). First Edition. Pp (8),ix-xviii,1-254 (including 8-page color photo section) + folding colour drawing. Photos, maps in text. 8vo, dark blue cloth, silver lettering to front & spine."Driven by the desire for scientific discovery and adventure, ten naïve yo ung men ventured north to the nearly uninhabited, ice-covered island of Spitsbergen in 1951. Scientific progress ensued, but so did misfortunes wrought by calamitous weather, an unworthy boat, and an entertaining but ill-informed approach to arctic survival. Innocents in the Arctic chronicles this Birmingham University expedition with an absorbing combination of wit and historical insight. Compiled from diaries, scientific field notes, and the author's memories, it documents an important period in polar exploration following the social upheaval of World War II. It also brings to life the labors of arctic travel before modern technology: the Birmingham researchers hauled their own sledges and communicated with hand-scrawled notes pinned to their leaky canvas tents. Despite these difficulties, the expedition was a scientific success and helped to unravel a compelling geological puzzle - why were relatively recent fossils entombed within rocks that were twice as old? The answers to this question and others contributed to an understandingof the evolution of the North Atlantic. The members of the Spitsbergen Exp edition saw themselves as fallible and human, and their struggles create a compelling alternative to traditional polar heroism. Colin Bull's reallistic, insider story of scientific adventure will appeal to polar enthusiasts, armchair historians, and anyone who remembers what it was like to be young and daring/" - from the dj..
