In 1906, in the ice fields northwest of Greenland Commander Robert E. Peary spotted a line of mysterious peaks looming in the distance. He called this unexplored realm "Crocker Land." Several years later George Borup and Donald MacMillan assembled a team of amateur adventurers to investigate Crocker Land. What followed was a sequence of events that trapped the explorers in a true-life adventure story, as the men endured howling blizzards, unearthly cold, food shortages, isolation, a fatal boating accident, a drunken sea captain, disease, dissension, and a horrific crime.
