    Greely, Adolphus

  1. Author: Greely, Adolphus
    Genre: nonfiction
    Note Relating to Cather: In The Song of the Lark, Thea Kronborg "comforted herself" in her cold loft room "by remembering all she could of 'Polar Explorations,' a fat, calf-bound volume her father had bought from a book-agent, and by thinking about the members of Greely's party: how they lay in their frozen sleeping-bags, each man hoarding the warmth of his own body and trying to make it last as long as possible against the on-coming cold that would be everlasting." Greely had command of the Lady Franklin Bay expedition in 1881.
