A Negro Explorer (1912) My Arctic Journal (1893) Dark Companion (1947)
The High Point of 19th Century Exploration:  Henson is a charming, earthy writer who takes you with him across the Arctic Ocean to the North Pole. Josephine Peary—the first woman arctic explorer. She was a delightful writer whose intelligence, wit and cultural sensitivity make this an enduring classic. I publish Matt's biography because it is such a marvelous read. The only official biography; written with Henson in 1947.
