Written with the benefit of conversations with surviving expedition members and the approval of all living leaders of expeditions and by the comrades and relatives of the dead. Hayes approached H. R. Mill to make the publication a joint effort but Mill declined as his opinion on the competence of certain explorers differed from Hayes’s. Mill did however encourage Hayes to continue and provided the Introduction to the book.
