"The terricif true adventure of an unjustlyforgotten Cape Bretoner - Canada's first photographer in the High Arctic. The 'indefatigable' George Rice emerged a leader on an American Arctic expedition [the Lady Franklin Bay Expedition, headed up by Adolphus Greely], and died a hero searching for food for his starving comrades. This gripping and painful story is told through George Rice's previously unpublished diaries. Packed with humour, pathos, and magnificent description, this book is apowerful historic and literary event -- masterfully presented by Jim Lotz who, seventy-five years later on Operation Hazen, served in the footsteps of the Lady Franklin Bay Expedition." - from the rear cover.
