Peary & Henson

The Race to the North Pole

Book - 2006
Rate this:
Although prejudiced attitudes in the early 1900s prevented African American explorer Mathew Henson from receiving his equal credit, he and Robert Peary were true partners in the dangerous race to discover the North Pole. This adventurous book describes how they survived exploration in the harsh climate of the Arctic by adopting the ways of the Inuit, and how despite controversy, they became famous role models upon returning to the United States.
