Discovering The North-West Passage has been praised by reviewers as:
- “a monument to scholarly devotion and documentary research.” (The Arctic Book Review),
- “new insights into how geographical discovery received the recognition of a grateful nation. Recommended.” (Choice)
- “a stirring account of the perilous journey of Robert McClure and his men, the first ever to pass through the Arctic from the Pacific to the Atlantic. In Stein’s words, McClure and his men are fully brought to life in a way no previous account of nineteenth-century exploration has managed.” (Russell Potter, author of Arctic Spectacles: The Frozen North in Visual Culture)
Glenn Stein has researched maritime and polar history since 1975 and is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS), Life Member of the American Polar Society (APS), member of the Orders and Medals Research Society (OMRS/UK), and of the Life Saving Awards Research Society (LSARS/UK).
