Beginning on board his boat, the Fram, which was deliberately driven into pack-ice off Siberia in order to drift north, Nansen and his companions later resorted to sleds and kayaks. Volume 1 includes descriptions of the expedition''s preparation and equipment, the farewell to Norway and voyage through the Kara Sea, ending with the party''s second autumn on the ice. Volume 2 describes the trek across pack-ice after abandoning the Fram - with 28 dogs, 3 sledges and 2 kayaks - and ending with an account of the return journey. Nansen later became Norwegian delegate to the League of Nations, directing humanitarian projects, and is famous for receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922 as well as for his polar achievements.
