Record #177664:

The frozen ship: the histories and tales of polar exploration / Sarah Moss.

Title: The frozen ship: the histories and tales of polar exploration / Sarah Moss.
Author(s): Moss, Sarah.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: New York: Bluebridge
Abstract: Examines accounts of polar journeys including Viking voyages; Renaissance explorers; accounts of expeditions by Nansen, Scott, Franklin, Parry and Shackleton; and journals of little-known explorers, missionaries and archaeologists from Europe and North America. Considers morbid fascination with expeditions that went wrong, even greater interest in last minute rescues, and fascination with finding and exhuming long-lost travellers. Discusses enduring appeal of romanticized frozen landscapes; link between national identity and planting flags in ice; descriptions of indigenous communities; stories of women at the poles; and purely imaginary approaches to polar travel from Frankenstein to Winnie the Pooh.
