OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
SATURDAY REVIEW, “Straightforward and clear in style, securing our confidence by its unaffected simplicity and good sense.”
“A charming book, remarkably well written and well illustrated.”
“Not only a lively narrative, well illustrated, of an Arctic voyage, it is also a very complete manual of Polar exploration."
“ His descriptions of exploration, as well as of whale and seal hunting in Northern Seas, are really enticing. Captain Wells has found the art of seizing upon the picturesque parts of ancient travels, and recounts them with an ardour and a pointedness which greatly enhance the value of his work.”
