American merchant ships in the Mediterranean Sea are attacked and plundered by Barbary pirates, their crews enslaved and ransomed by Tripoli's vicious ruler, Yusuf. But President Thomas Jefferson has a new navy, which he deploys with orders to confront and crush Tripoli. Disaster strikes, however, when Yusuf improbably captures the mighty 36-gun frigate Philadelphia and her 300-man crew. Running out of options, Jefferson dispatches secret agent William Eaton and Marine Lieutenant Presley O'Bannon on a daring overland mission to topple Yusuf from power and rescue the American hostages. Will Eaton's audacious "enterprise" succeed--or will Yusuf humiliate America again?

When supplies ran out, the return trek across the Barrens became one of the most tragic incidents in the history of Arctic exploration. Robert Hood was one of those who perished on this trip. Weakened by starvation, he was shot through the head by a member of the party turned cannibal. A highly sensitive and educated man with a painter's eye for detail, Hood was an astute observer of the political and social ways of the North. The journal reveals his awareness, unusual in his time, of the adverse effects on Native peoples and their environment of the coming of the Europeans. Hood's paintings capture the beauty as well as the harshness of the North. His bird paintings in particular are of special artistic and historical interest.
