Each would lead a team with several Eskimo helpers to build the trail, make igloo camps, haul supplies. MacMillan would later lead his own Arctic explorations, write many books, and host summer cruises to Greenland for students of Bowdoin College. Marvin was shot to death by one of his Eskimo men as a result of an argument. George Borup wrote a charming book about his adventures with Peary but drown in a canoe accident only a few years later. Dr. Goodsell only published his own book much later. Click Here to go to Next Page
