John R. Bockstoce

Arctic Discoveries: Images from Voyages of Four Decades in the North

"John Bockstoce is a great Arctic traveller in the earlier, harder sense of the term. He completed the long-sought Northwest Passage, a journey of unparalleled achievement, Starting in an Inuit skin boat in Nome, Alaska, he navigated eastward through ice-choked Canadian waters to the misty headlands of Sisimiut, West Greenland. He then sailed south along Labrador's coast.... John is an outstanding photographer and author and a true northern voyager."
–James A. Houston, O.C., artist and author
