Chiefly quotations from journals of members of the British Arctic Air Route Expedition, 1930-31, across the Greenland ice cap. "James Maurice Scott (1906–1986), commonly known as J. M. Scott, was a British author known for his novels, travel writing, and works on history. He is perhaps best known for his novel "The Sea Shall Not Have Them," a World War II story about the crew of a ditched British bomber awaiting rescue in the North Sea. The novel was later adapted into a film. Scott also wrote a number of other novels, as well as travel books and historical works. His writing was known for its vivid descriptions and its attention to historical and geographical detail. Scott was born in India and educated in England. He worked as a journalist and a broadcaster before turning to writing full-time. His experiences living and traveling in different parts of the world, including Asia and the Middle East, influenced his writing and provided material for many of his books." /
