The first West Europeans to winter in the high Arctic and survive, Dutch sailing-master William Barents and his 16-member crew battled scurvy, hunger, the assaults of bears, and the intense winter cold, then made a 1,600-mile escape in open boats. Barents died on the way home, but his voyage was meticulously recorded in remarkably vivid detail by one of the survivors.
