This is the fourth of a series of adventurous expeditions in which the author and his family explored the land of the midnight sun in quest of big game. There are many interesting encounters with polar bears, walruses, seals and arctic birds, in which both the camera and the rifle were effectively used. Life aboard a Norwegian sealer amid icebergs and floes is described in the author's inimitable manner. There are many suggestions regarding transportation and equipment that hunters in this region will find invaluable in planning their trips. The photography is excellent.
