Ellesmere Island lays a mere 450 miles from the North Pole and has the highest peaks in the Western Hemisphere east of the Rockies. For more than a decade, Kobalenko has traced the routes of explorers and Inuits, and broken… many new trails across the frozen terrain of Ellesmere Island. He investigates the motives and mistakes of the island's first explorers, searches for clues to the mysterious disappearance of scientist-explorer Dr. Hans Kruger and the murder of an Inuit guide. 2002.
