Product Overview

Upon hearing rumors that the men who discovered the North Pole had fathered sons while on their expedition, S. Allen Counter arranged to visit the remote villages where Robert Peary, the credited discoverer, and Matthew Henson, the black man whose contributions to the expedition are widely ignored, stayed during their travels. This book recounts the astonishing story of Counter’s trips to Greenland and the relationships he develops with the Eskimo ancestors of the two men. At the same time, new evidence about Peary’s journey to the Pole is examined, and it comes to light that Henson, was the true hero.
