Product description

Who says great stories have to be long? They don’t! They just have to be great – that’s all! This cool quick read gives you all the excitement in fewer words. More fun. Less effort. No wasted time.

Henson would act as Peary’s right-hand man on a treacherous journey to the Arctic. Soon he would become the first black man – and maybe even the first man – ever to reach the North Pole!
