Reviews

"Stunning archival photographs from the early 20th century help tell the inspiring story of the African-American polar explorer. The story demonstrates that fortitude, strength, and loyalty are not determined by the color of one's skin, but by the determination of one's spirit." --starred review, School Library Journal
