Morrissey' under the command of Captain Bob Bartlett, and her trips to Greenland, Alaska and the Canadian Arctic from 1925-33. Foreword by Lawrence Perry. A collection of salty but true Arctic sea tales by Bartlett written in his inimical style as though he was talking from the end of the bar Ñ although he never drank, smoke or married. In 1924, after his expeditions with Peary and Stefansson, he purchased the Effie M. Morrissey. Bartlett sailed the schooner North on numerous voyages and expeditions. Included are chapters on his voyages to Labrador, north Greenland, Foxe Channel, Bering Strait, East Greenland Ñ Òthe land of the EskimosÓ, and back to north Greenland to erect the Peary Memorial Pillar.
