    Hardcover Description:

    Matthew Henson was not meant to lead an ordinary life. His dreams had sails.

    They took him from the port of Baltimore, around the world, and north to the pole.

    No amount of fear, cold, hunger, or injustice could keep him from tasting adventure and exploring the world.

    He learned to survive in the Arctic wilderness, and he stood by Admiral Peary for years on end, all for the sake of his goal.

    And finally, after decades of facing danger and defying the odds, he reached the North Pole and made history.

    At last, Henson had proved himself as an explorer-and as a man.
