Product Description

This is Bartlett’s version of the controversial loss of the Karluk, the flagship of Vilhjalmur Stefansson’s Arctic expedition of 1913-1916.  Bartlett played Chopin’s Funeral Waltz as the ice claimed his ship, then lead his crew to Wrangell Island where they awaited his return.  Bartlett left them, walking some 700 miles across the frozen Arctic Ocean and down the coast of Siberia to get help.  They did not all come back.
