N by E by Rockwell Kent, 1930
For years I have admired and collected Rockwell Kent's wonderful woodcut illustrated books. Therefore, this book comes as a shock because I forgot he had also been an adventurer and explorer. This account of his expedition in a 33-foot cutter from NYC harbor to the rugged shores of Greenland is exiting but the ART also does not disappoint!
