“…with Capelotti’s smooth writing style and extensive research, many people will be able to enjoy these exciting tales of grand adventure. For historians looking for a different perspective on a tired subject, to students looking for an exciting, in-depth review of Arctic exploration in its larger context, Capelotti’s book presents the narrative in a way that both informs and compels the reader to learn more about Arctic exploration. Though there are other books within the [University of Calgary Press’s] Northern Lights series that highlight Arctic exploration, Shipwreck at Cape Flora is an exceptional addition to the series. Capelotti’s book offers both an exciting tale of adventure, while providing the series with a historical background of Arctic exploration.
