Item description for Love and Ice: The Tragic Obsessions of Dr. Elisha Kent Kane, Arctic Explorer by Ray Edinger...
"Love and Ice" is the true story of Dr. Elisha Kent Kane, who discovered the Humboldt Glacier (the North Atlantic Ocean's greatest source for icebergs) and mapped the Smith Sound that Robert Peary followed fifty years later on his quest for the North Pole. The poignant love affair between Kane and famed Spiritualist Maggie Fox adds heart-warming contrast to the explorer's frigid advantures in the Arctic. Upon Kane's death in 1857, his universal fame culminated in a funeral procession rivaled only by that of President Lincoln.
