In 1897 three men disappeared in the North Pole—only now have their final hours been revealed with this award-winning forensic investigation of a 120-year-old mystery

On July 11th, 1897, three men set out in a hydrogen balloon bound for the North Pole. Led by engineer August Soloman Andrée, they want to make history, but are frighteningly underprepared. Three days into their journey they make a crash landing and disappear into a white nightmare. They never return. 33 years later, the men's bodies and equipment are found buried beneath the snow and ice on a deserted glacier. They had enough food, clothing, and ammunition to survive. Why did they die? 100 years later, Bea Uusma is at a party. She pulls a book off a shelf about the Andrée Expedition. For the next 15 years, Bea will think of nothing else. This is her journey to uncover the truth.
Bea Uusma started investigating the Andrée expedition while completing her medical degree. She was awarded the August Prize for best non-fiction book for The Expedition.
