On April 6, 1909, Admiral Robert E. Peary became the first man to reach the North Pole. In doing so, Peary achieved a goal upon which he had focused his whole life since youth. Basing his work on exclusive access to Peary's never-before-seen personal correspondence, John Edward Weems brilliantly unfolds the story of Peary and his historic conquest of the Pole. With sensitive insight and sound research, Weems documents the childhood experiences that forged Peary's unshakable, ferocious character and the tragic controversy that plagued him following his polar triumph at the age of fifty-two. A rare combination of fascinating psychological portrait and thrilling adventure narrative, Peary : The Explorer and Man reveals an extraordinary tale of the unrelenting human will to succeed.--Cover
