The Story of Matthew Henson: Arctic Explorer


Expect some shipping delays due to COVID-19

Through howling snowstorms and over treacherous sheets of ice, Matthew Henson and Robert Peary raced against other explorers and death itself to be the first to reach the North Pole. After six expeditions and eighteen years, they finally planted the American flag at the top of the world on April 6, 1909. Because he was a black man, Henson had to start out as Peary’s servant. But with his intelligence, bravery, and resourcefulness, Matthew Henson soon became Peary’s chief assistant.
