On July 11th, 1897, three men set out in a hydrogen balloon bound for the North Pole. They never returned. Led by engineer August Soloman Andree these men wanted to make history, but were frighteningly underprepared and inexperienced. Two days into their journey, they were forced to make a crash landing in a freezing, isolated tundra, and disappeared into a white nightmare.

Thirty-three years later, the men's bodies were found perfectly preserved under the snow and ice. They had enough food, water, clothing and ammunition to survive, so why did they all die? By retracing their steps, studying their letters and journals, and forensically examining the bodies, scientist Bea Uusma has finally uncovered the extraordinary truth behind their deaths.
