The Karluk's Last Voyage
An Epic of Death and Survival in the Arctic, 1913-1916Book - 2001
"We did not all come back." Thus begins this firsthand account of the extraordinary adventure of the Karluk, the flagship of explorer Vilhjalmar Steffanson's Arctic expedition of 1913-1916. When the Karluk became trapped in the ice, Steffanson abandoned Captain Robert A. Bartlett and his crew, nearly half of whom perished before the ordeal ended. Accompanied by one Eskimo, Bartlett made the treacherous journey across the ice to Siberia to find help, and returned with rescuers to collect the survivors.
