The human story has always been one of perseverance - often against remarkable odds. The most astonishing survival tale of all might be that of sixteenth-century Dutch explorer William Barents and his crew of sixteen, who ventured further north than any Europeans before and, on their third polar expedition, lost their ship to unforgiving ice. The men would spend the next year fighting off ravenous polar bears, gnawing hunger and endless winter.

In Icebound, Andrea Pitzer masterfully combines a gripping tale of survival with a sweeping history of the great Age of Exploration - a time of hope, adventure and seemingly unlimited geographic frontiers. At the story's centre is William Barents, one of the greatest navigators of his time, whose obsessive quest to chart a path through the most remote regions of the Arctic ended in both tragedy and glory.
