Book Excerpt:

The continual condensation of the moisture from the breath upon everything about the head and face is a decided inconvenience, and when it condenses upon the eye-lashes, and the upper and the lower lashes freeze together, the ice must be removed or it is impossible to open the eyes. This requires the momentary application of the bare hand, and every time it goes back into the mitten it carries some moisture with it, so that after a while mittens are wet as well as head-gear; moreover, there is always a certain perspiration that condenses.

Several different and quite exciting trips by dogsled are described in this book. Hudson Stuck must have been very capable to do the traveling he did, and then taking the effort to write about it. All the trips were very strenuous and extremely dangerous in places. This is the earliest descriptio...more

What's not to like about Hudson Stuck? A kind, curious and intelligent individual who didn't just survive, but thrived in the Far North when it was a more primitive place that it is today. Even though his writing is more basic than literary, I still recommend his books for anybody who loves the N...more
