Book Description
On January 4, 1914, the Karluk was stuck in ice when the ominous sound of the shipís stern being ripped open by pack ice was heard by all on board. It sounded like the firing of a cannon. Bartlett immediately ordered supplies be unloaded on the ice. The Karluk began to break up on January 10, and all on board were ordered to abandon ship. When everyone was safely on the ice, the captain himself went back to his cabin and, all alone, put Chopinís Funeral March on his Victrola. As the water rose in the cabin, he whispered "Goodbye," left the sinking vessel to the mournful sound of Chopinís music and hurried out on the ice. It was to be the beginning of one of the greatest feats of valour in world history.
