More Description

"Hero in Disgrace" is an historic tale of exploration, politics and American history. "This is a grand story, full of adventure and intrigue."
- Publisher's Weekly
"An excellent mix of history, adventure and intrigue."
- Seattle Times
"A well-researched and well-written study presenting new and convincing evidence that corrects the long-accepted claim of Robert Peary that he actually reached the North Pole on April 6, 1909."
- Choice Review
"Were it not so convincingly documented by the author, it would be hard to believe the calculating way in which Cook's claim was ripped apart by Peary's powerful backers, including the New York Times."
- School Library Journal Review
"While Abramson's scenario for the conspiracy against Cook is persuasive and dramatic, his astonishing accounts of the hardships of Arctic exploration capture the imagination and make for entrancing reading."
