Description

Early into the expedition, of which the original aim was to find a north-eastern passage, their ship, the Tegetthoff, became trapped in ice, and its resultant drifting into unknown territories led to the discovery of Franz-Josef Land.

Volume 1 explores the climate and terrain of the Arctic region, the navigational strategies employed by the crew, and the challenges they faced as perilous conditions led them to abandon ship.

Volume 2 describes the crew’s exploration of Franz-Josef Land by sledge, and their subsistence by means of bear-hunting, rationing of food, and making clothes from animal skins, until they made their way to safety.
