Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0924486899, Paperback)

When Tristan Jones was discharged from the Navy, and told he was physically unfit for more seagoing, he got hold of a small craft, Cresswell, which he converted to a cruising ketch and started sailing. Determined to sail further north than anyone else, Jones set out for Iceland, accompanied only by his dog, Nelson. Jones spent two winters full of continuous suspense and danger in this bleak polar region.

(see all 2 descriptions)

Retiring on a pension after being torpedoed in WWII, Tristan Jones embarks on a test of endurance that will last over two years, nearly killing him more than once. Attempting to sail farther North than anyone ever has, he embarks from Iceland on the Cresswell in the summer of 1959. His only companion? A three-legged, one-eyed Labrador named Nelson. He spends his first winter holed up near an Eskimo village in a Greenland fjord. After a violent snowstorm and without an adequate supply of food, he spends a full week digging himself out of enormous snow drifts until he is able to be seen and rescued. This incident kicks off a series of impossible adventures as he voyages to the treacherous waters of the North Pole. His second winter at sea finds him trapped in an enormous ice pack in the Arctic Ocean. For 366 days he is marooned on the craft. As he faces his loneliness and the possibility of his own death under the dazzling Northern lights, Tristan Jones's incomparable sailing adventure reaches an unimaginable climax. ICE!… (more)
