Who was first to reach the North Pole: Frederick Cook or Robert Peary? Herbert, who retraced both the Cook and the Peary routes, here provides an intensive examination of each man's claim to the Pole and determines that neither made their destination. ``This is a valuable addition to Arctic history, and a gripping adventure story,'' said PW .
