MacMillan, set out to explore a distant land sighted by Peary in 1906 . . . 'North to the Horizon' is a very personal account of Dr. Hunt's experiences as physician for the expedition and for the Polar Eskimos. This is his story in his own words--taken from his diary, letters and reminiscences as recorded by his wife, Marion, and daughter Ruth, who has skillfully arranged these firsthand accounts into a fascinating and exciting record of the men of the Crocker Land Expedition and the harsh land they strived to know."
