The Pole is Eric Walters's powerful fictionalized retelling of Robert Peary's 1909 expedition to the North Pole aboard The Roosevelt, as experienced by a young cabin boy named Danny, away from home and at sea for the very first time. This highly adventurous tale features Canadian hero Robert Bartlett, captain of The Roosevelt (featured in Walters's mega-bestselling Trapped in Ice), and Matthew Henson, Peary's assistant and the first African-American Arctic explorer.
