Subtitle "Including the first ascent of a mountain to start below sea level", this edition has a foreword by Roger D. Taylor (not to be confused with Roger C. Taylor). He writes "Tilman came to sailing late--in his mid-fifties--and it shows. Although he became a good ocean navigator, taking his pilot cutters through dangerous and difficult waters, he didn't I suspect, ever achieve the fluency and sureness in close-quater boat handling that only a lifetime of sailing can develop." And so there are indeed adventures.

Part One: Bylot Island, Baffin Bay
Part Two: East Greenland
Part Three: Heard Island, Sourthern Ocean
Part Four: East Greenland, Return Engagement
