Miss Mirsky's “Northern Conquest”

Nature volume 135, page 189 (02 February 1935) | Download Citation



IN my review of this delightful book I was wrong in making it appear on p. 884 of NATURE for December 8 that the work was done under the critical supervision of Dr. Stefansson. I now know that this was not the case. The great explorer did not see the book until it was submitted to him in a complete form by the publisher. Miss Mirsky is thus entitled to all the credit for her brilliant work.
