TRANTER, G.J. Plowing the Arctic : Being an Account of the Voyage of the R.C.M.P. St Roch through the North West Passage from West to East. Toronto & New York : Longmans, Green and Co., (November, 1945). First Canadian Printing. Pp. (8),1-311,(1), frontispiece + 10 pages of black and white plates. Map endpapers. 8vo, blue cloth with white lettering to spine. The twenty-eight month voyage of the eighty-ton schooner "St. Roch", with her crew of seven Mounties and her veteran Arctic Skipper, Sergeant Henry Larsen, is documented in this story of endurance and bravery in Canada's Arctic. "Skipperedby the veteran Arctic navigator, Sergeant Henry Larsen, the R.C.M.P. patro l boat St. Roch sailed into Sydney, N.S., on October 8th, 1942, after a history-making voyage of 10,000 miles across the top of the world. Twenty-eight months after she had left Vancouver, the little eighty-ton schooner completed her voyage -- the first Canadian vessel to navigate the North-West Passage, and the first vessel of any kind to make the trip from West to East. This is a story of epic endurance and achievement -- a story that will be sung as long as there are those who love adventure, admire courage and delight in the accomplishment of the near-impossible. With a crew of seven Mounted Policemen, most of whom had never been to sea before, Sergeant Larsen battled his way through the long relentless winter months when grinding ice threatened to crush the very life out of his ship;' manouevered through fog and treacherous currents, much of the time in uncharted waters where dangerlurked in gigantic icebergs; and finally brough his crew safely to port." - from the dustjacket. Very good rubbed, edgeworn, verso-tape-repaired, unclipped dustjacket. 30.00
