Description: -- Contains never-before-published and hard-to-find information

-- Includes 80 photos. Showcases eight breathtaking, previously unpublished photos by Bradford Washburn

For 50 years, Bradford Washburn has been fascinated by Frederick Cook's claim to have been the first to reach the summit of Mount McKinley in 1906. The Dishonorable Dr. Cook tells the story of what sort of man he was, why he staked his reputation on a flimsy story, and why so many people have been anxious to debunk his claims. Other details of Cook's colorful, if checkered, career are also included, such as his role in Peary's unsuccessful expedition to the North Pole in 1892/93, his own amazing circumnavigation of McKinley in 1903, and his determination to be the first to reach the North Pole.

Most compelling, are the side-by-side comparisons of Cook's original photos with Washburn's identical ones, taken decades later, from locations very different than Cook alleged. Washburn's name is all but synonymous with Mount McKinley, and his skill in recreating the photos is incomparable.
