Default Book on Arctic voyage 1905-1906

This is a historic novel about a ship that voyages to above
the Arctic circle in 1905-1906. It is based on an unpublished
memoir or journal of one of the crewmen.

The sailor got hired onto a ship that traded with natives
of Alaska, Canada, and Siberia above the Arctic circle and
they got locked in ice over the winter of 1905-1906 along
with several of the whaling fleet ships.

They mostly used sail, but did have a back-up gasoline engine
for emergencies. However, it didn't work the time they needed
it most.

The sailor's descriptions of weather, whale hunts, and native
culture are thrilling and, in some cases, wild. In one place
you learn how to build an oomiak (that's how it's spelled in
the book) which is a native canoe.

There sure was a bunch of stuff going on up there a 100
years ago: murders and kidnappings, not to mention the
weather and info about the captains and ships of the
whaling fleet.

alopecia areata is a disease that impacts the hair follicles, which are
male pattern baldness element of the skin from which hairs develop. In most scenarios, hair falls out in little, round patches about the dimension of a quarter. The extent of the hair loss
male pattern baldness varies in some instances, it is only in a few spots. In others, the hair loss can be better. Occasionally it can entail the whole scalp (alopecia totalis) or even all the human body and scalp (alopecia universalis). It is not doable to predict how a great deal hair will be misplaced. Regrowth of hair in normal alopecia areata is standard over a period of time of months or, from time to time, many years, but can't be guaranteed. The hair from time to time regrows white at minimum in the very first instance. Further more hair reduction is not unheard of. In alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis the likelihood of total regrowth is significantly less.
