Reading List: Shores Of The Polar Sea By Edward L. Moss Recommended reading from the shelves of the Avaunt library

Edward L. Moss was surgeon aboard George Nares’ British Arctic Expedition of 1875–76, on the flagship Alert, whilst also acting as unofficial artist for the trip, chronicling the sometimes frustrating and always harsh ‘details of shipboard rituals and disappointingly limited open seas within the ice’ in Shores Of The Polar Sea.
