In July 1881, Lt. A.W. Greely and his crew of 24 scientists and explorers were bound for the last region unmarked on global maps. Their goal: Farthest North. What would follow was one of the most extraordinary and terrible voyages ever made. Greely and his men confronted every possible challenge --- vicious wolves, sub-zero temperatures and months of total darkness --- as they set about exploring one of the most remote, unrelenting environments on the planet. LABYRINTH OF ICE tells the true story of the heroic lives and deaths of these voyagers hell-bent on fame and fortune --- at any cost --- and how their journey changed the world.
