Description: An astonishing narrative of disaster and perseverance. The Last Voyage of the Karluk will thrill readers of adventure classics like Into Thin Air and The Climb. In 1913 explorer Viljhalmur Stefansson hired William McKinlay to join the Karluk on a mission to chart the waters north of Alaska.Yet the crew was untrained; the ship was ill-suited to the icy conditions; and almost at once the Karluk was crushed -- at which point Stefansson abandoned his crew to continue his journey on another ship. This is the only firsthand account of what followed a nightmare struggle in which half the crew perished, one was mysteriously shot, and the rest were near death by the time of their rescue 12 months later. Nearly a century later, this remains one of the most compelling survival stories ever written.
