Race to the Frozen North - The Matthew Henson Story

Author(s): Catherine Johnson; Katy Hickey (Illustrator)

Middle Fiction

When orphan Matthew Henson ran away from his violent stepmother to find a new life in the big city, no one could have predicted that he would become the first man to reach the North Pole. A little luck and a lot of hard work led to a life of adventure on the high seas and in the Arctic, but back home in America his achievements were ignored due to the colour of his skin. Race to the Frozen North tells his remarkable true story.
