Journey to the North Pole

Journey to the North Pole
$6.95
This month marks the 100th anniversary of Robert E. Peary's journey to the North Pole. In our April issue, we retrace both Peary's route to the Arctic in the spring of 1909. We meet some of the people who helped and supported him, from the first African American explorer to reach the pole, Matthew Henson, to Peary's wife, Josephine. Get to know the Inughuits, the natives of northern Greenland, whose knowledge of how to survive in the Arctic was a key to Peary's success. And see how and with what equipment Peary's teams packed their sledges - and discover what they were not allowed to bring. There's a fun activity to help you identify Arctic creatures and we've also included a Polar Bear Contest. You'll laugh out loud when you see the photos we found of polar bears in various stages of activity and inactivity. Finally, we've also included an article about the North Pole today and how scientists are still learning about this frozen frontier.
