Sailing north of Kulusuk, East Greenland, 1969
The "Ejnar Mikkelson" performs a ferry service up the east coast.
Ejnar Mikkelson, a Dane, mounted an expedition, in 1909, to search for papers from a party lost
somewhere on the ice-cap that forms most of Greenland.
Mikkelson and his partner were, in turn, lost.
They endured a cold and hungry winter, neither wanting to carry their only gun for
fear of the temptation to shoot the other for food.
The book "Two Against The Ice," by Mikkelson, is beautifully written and one of (if not the!) best
and most riveting survival tales ever.
