Description: In 1912, the Saint Anna, a Russian ship in search of hunting grounds, was frozen into the remote expanse of frigid ocean between Siberia and the North Pole, trapping her crew aboard. For nearly a year and a half, they struggled to stay alive. As all hope of rescue faded, the ship's second-in-command, Valerian Albanov, set out with ten others on foot across the frozen sea, dragging jerry-built kayaks behind them on improvised sleds. Only Albanov and one companion survived the next ninety harrowing days.

Originally published in Russia in 1917, In the Land of White Death was translated into English for the first time by the Modern Library to widespread critical acclaim. As well as presenting Albanov's vivid, first-person account, this expanded paperback edition contains three new photographs and an extensive new Epilogue by David Roberts based on the never-before-published diary of Albanov's only fellow survivor, Alexander Konrad. As gripping as Albanov's own tale, the Epilogue sheds new light on the tragic events of 1912-1914, injects fresh life into several of those who perished (including Albanov's captain and nemesis, Georgiy Brusilov, and the charming nurse Yerminiya Zhdanko, the only woman on board), and, inadvertently, reveals one new piece of information -- about the identity of the deserters who left Albanov for dead -- that is absolutely shocking.
