Excerpt from The Three Voyages of William Barents to the Arctic Regions: 1594, 1595 and 1596

The yacht Glow-worm left Hammerfest (norway) on June 23rd, and made her first ice on the 4th of July, being about twenty-five miles to westward of Goose Land (novaya Zemlya). The approach to the land was found to be obstructed by solid icefields, but two days afterwards, Mr. Gardiner succeeded in reaching the land-water, and shaping his course north, he tried to get as far as Cape Nassau.

Customer Reviews
  • By Kat Gale on January 13, 2014

    Loved this book: a reprint of the original journals of Gerrit de Veer chronicling the Dutch voyage to discover a northeast passage to China, and the horrific experiences which left them all on the brink of death in the arctic. An amazing account of human ingenuity, endurance, and survival. Go read it. Preferably in the original Dutch (the translation leaves something to be desired, it has quite a few mistakes).
