about

This is the terrific true adventure of an unjustly forgotten Cape Bretoner, Canada's first photographer of the High Arctic. George Rice emerged as a leader on an American Arctic expedition and died a hero
searching for food for his starving comrades. This gripping and painful story is told through George Rice's previously unpublished diaries. Packed with humour, pathos, and magnificent description, this book is a powerful historic and literary event, masterfully presented by Jim Lotz who, seventy-five years later on Operation Hazen, served in the footsteps of the Lady Franklin Bay Expedition.
The author of 24 books, including THE BEST JOURNEY IN THE WORLD: Adventures in Canada's High Arctic and FATHER JIMMY: The Life of Fr.Jimmy Tompkins, Jim Lotz has been actively engaged in community-based development. He is a Fellow of the Arctic Institute of North America.
