In the Arctic Seas

by Francis McClintock

It is fascinating to learn about 19th Century men who braved extreme elements of cold and ice for months at a time. In ways most modern men would not, they accepted daily discomforts and the close possibility of their own demise with equanimity. These sailors all seemed multi-talented in their abilities to sail, to run, maintain, and repair engines, to hunt, to make mathematical calculations, to measure temperature, magnetism, pressure, etc.
