The World Of Ice
by Robert Michael Ballantyne

Novel originally published in 1893 about the whaling cruise of the Dolphin and the adventures of her crew in the Polar regions.

R. M. Ballantyne is possibly the greatest writer of childrens adventure stories. He is most famous for his work The Coral Island, but wrote more than a hundred stories. Because of a mistake he made in The Coral Island, in which he gave an incorrect thickness of coconut shells, he subsequently travelled all over the world to ensure his stories were accurate and carefully researched.
