Thank you for considering smooth reading "Under the Polar Star," subtitled "The Young Explorers." This 64 page book published in 1886 has several illustrations, and if you want to see these you can download the web browser, ePub, or kindle version.

This "dime novel" is from the Golden Library series, which the publisher said "has no other mission than to supplant the bad with something good that shall be equally as attractive to the young of both sexes and of all conditions." This particular book follows Will, a "boy with honest face and manly bearing and noble determination to win his way in the world... [who] is destined to meet with many strange and varied adventures." These adventures include artic sea travel, ship wreck, and an evil ship captain. The illustrations are interesting as the story heads into arctic regions, and Will works to right wrongs and stay alive.

If you need more time to finish, just let me know, and I look forward to your comments.
