"(...) Welchen Wert hätte das Leben ohne seine Träume?" Fridtjof Nansen Er ist einer der ungewöhnlichsten Forschungsreisenden seiner Zeit, der sich nicht allein durch seine Entdeckungsfahrten einen Namen macht: Fridtjof Nansen geht als ruhmreicher Polarforscher, Zoologe, Philanthrop und internationaler Staatsmann in die Geschichte ein. Im Jahr 1893 bricht er zu jener kühnen Expedition auf, die ihn über Nacht weit über die Grenzen seines Landes hinaus bekannt machen sollte: der Eroberung des Nordpols. Nansens Arktisexpedition dauert mehr als drei Jahre, nach deren Ablauf der Norweger in die Heimat zurückkehrt, ohne den Nordpol je betreten zu haben. Das autobiographische Zeugnis dieser Unternehmung, das den Leser durch die Ehrlichkeit und den kompromisslosen Mut seines Verfassers besticht, dokumentiert die einzelnen Stationen der Exkursion auf packende, in ihrer Intensität schmerzlich ergreifenden Weise: die Verfehlung des Nordpols mit dem Schiff, Nansens Entschluss, das ewige Eis mit Hundeschlitten zu durchqueren und den Nordpol auf Schneeschuhen zu erreichen, der Abbruch der Expedition 450 Kilometer vor dem Ziel und der Rückweg zur Fram, der zum nackten Überlebenskampf gegen Eisbärattacken, Stürzen ins Meer und die unerbittliche arktische Kälte wird . Fridtjof Nansen (1861-1930), norwegischer Polarforscher und Zoologe, gehört zu den bedeutendsten Entdeckungsreisenden der Geschichte. Getrieben von einem leidenschaftlichen Forschergeist und einer unergründlichen Sehnsucht brach er immer wieder in arktische Gefilde auf. Nach der Rückkehr von seiner epochalen Polarexpedition schrieb er seine Erlebnisse nieder und begann in der Folgezeit als Politiker und Diplomat eine zweite Karriere. Für sein aussergewöhnliches humanitäres Engagement u.a. bei der Rückführung von Kriegsgefangenen nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg erhielt er 1922 den Friedensnobelpreis
