    A wild epic journey by an American with two Inuit companions, struggling to be the first humans to reach the North Pole. After reaching the Pole, the struggle continued with a year-long, near death journey back to civilization, without supplies, competing with animals of the wild without defensive weapons, crossing a shifting sea of ice and struggling for life during the long winter night.

    Frederick Albert Cook (June 10, 1865 - August 5, 1940) was an American explorer and physician noted for his claims of achieving the first summit of Mount McKinley, in September 1906, and having reached the North Pole on April 21, 1908, which would have been a year before Robert Peary. Both claims have been largely discredited. Later, Dr. Cook was a founding member of the Arctic Club and Explorers Club.
