Shipwreck at Cape Flora : The Expeditions of Benjamin Leigh Smith, England's Forgotten Arctic Explorer

By (author) Capelotti, P. J.

Benjamin Leigh Smith discovered and named dozens of islands in the Arctic but published no account of his pioneering explorations. He refused public accolades and sent stand-ins to deliver the results of his work to scientific societies. Yet, the Royal Geographic Society's Sir Clements R Markham referred to him as a polar explorer of the first rank. Travelling to the Arctic islands that Leigh Smith explored and criss-crossing England to uncover unpublished journals, diaries, and photographs, archaeologist and writer P J Capelotti details Leigh Smith's five major Arctic expeditions and places them within the context of the great polar explorations in the nineteenth century.
