Dangerous Work: Diary of an Arctic Adventure

Dangerous Work: Diary of an Arctic Adventure -  Arthur Conan Doyle When this book was published I did not hold out much hope for it, as I had already been burned by the disappointing release ‘The Diary of John Smith’ and thought that the sudden outpouring of posthumous publications related to Conan Doyle could end up tarnishing his great reputation.
Fortunately my early fears could not have been further from the truth. It is a marvellous book, which not only details a long forgotten trade and the brave men who toiled at it, but gives insights into the young doctor’s life at a point when he was deeply entrenched in his medical studies and his future calling as an author was just a pipe dream to him.
It begs the question, why wasn’t this book published earlier?
