The dead of an Arctic winter. Their ships locked in ice, with no means of escape, the whalers had restricted provisions on board, and little hope of surviving till warmer temperatures arrived many months later. The mission? Follow three rescuers in a race against time — and all odds — in this heartpounding true adventure. Here will likely be the incredible story of three men sent by President Mc Kinley to rescue them. A perilous trek over 1,500 miles of practically impassable Alaskan terrain, in the bone-chilling months of winter, to secure two herds of reindeer (for food) and find a strategy to guide them to the whalers before they starve. Whaling ships full of men, stranded in ice. In 1897, whaling inside the Arctic waters off Alaska's coast was as dangerous as it was lucrative. With the help of photographs and journal entries by one from the rescuers, Martin W. Sandler takes us on each and every step of their riveting journey, facing raging blizzards, killing cold, injured sled dogs, and setbacks to test the strongest of wills. And in that particular year, winter blasted early, bringing storms and ice packs that caught eight American whale ships and 3 hundred sailors off guard.
