Dumont d'Urville was a brilliant, enigmatic sailor who made two great voyages to the Pacific and the Antarctic in 1826-29 and 1837-40. So taken by d'Urville's exciting story, Helen Rosenman has rewritten the tale from d'Urville's official accounts to create a gripping narrative account of those explorations.
