The Polar Adventures of a Rich American Dame: A Life of Louise Arner Boyd

The first comprehensive biography of Louise Arner Boyd — the intrepid American socialite who reinvented herself as the leading female polar explorer of the twentieth century.

Born in the late 1880s to a gritty mining magnate who made his millions in the California gold rush and a well-bred mother descended from one of New York’s distinguished families, society beauty Louise

Born in the late 1880s to a gritty mining magnate who made his millions in the California gold rush and a well-bred mother descended from one of New York’s distinguished families, society beauty Louise Arner Boyd was raised during a glittering era. She was presented at the British royal court, and travelled in genteel style from one dazzling capital to another.

After inheriting a staggering family fortune while only in her thirties, she began leading a double life. She fell under the spell of the north in the late 1920s after a sailing excursion to the Arctic Ocean. Over the next three decades, she achieved international notoriety as a rugged and audacious polar explorer while maintaining her flamboyant lifestyle as a leading philanthropist and society woman. Yet despite organizing, financing, and directing seven daring Arctic expeditions between 1926 and 1955, she is virtually unknown today.

    Joanna Kafarowksi’s book on the life of Louise Arner Boyd was a delight to read. Her research is impeccable, and she uses it to tell a fascinating story, that is both learned but eminently readable. I was particularly impressed with how the author managed to provide deep insights into the early life of this unusual woman, allowing readers to get a sense of the underlying motivations for her zeal for exploration. The book is also enhanced by a broad range of historical photos, some of which simpl

    Louise Arner Boyd was an heiress who also happened to explore the Arctic region numerous times from the 1930s-1950s culminating in a flight to the North Pole.

    Boyd was born to privilege and grew up in California. At a young age she lost both older brothers, which devastated her parents and left her the sole heiress to a multi-million dollar fortune. She always enjoyed reading stories about the Scandinavian region and was soon landing an expedition personally funded by her estate. She was one of the first females to explore the area and the first to pay for it herself. She even helped search for a missing fellow explorer. She has various geographical sites named for her.
    Sadly she died close to destitution because she had spent most of her money on these trips as well as self-publishing her books and funding her traveling expenses for her appearances and award presentations. But she died satisfied.
    What she accomplished allowed US to map the coastline of Greenland. She also worked for the Defense Dept during WWII, but it was top secret.
    Highly opinionated and often thought as a micromanager Boyd had an influence on what the Geographical Society charted. She was a pretty important person. I am happy to add this book to my Notorious Women in history shelf.

    Louise Arner Boyd was born into a wealthy family and a comfortable, idyllic life in California. Hardship eventually struck, her two brothers died young, and by the time she was in her early thirties, she had also lost her parents. Eager to make her own way in the world, she followed her dream to become an arctic explorer, no small feat at the turn of the 20th century.

    Her 1933 expedition to Jan Mayen Island and the east coast of Greenland was one of the most interesting. Academics on the expediti

    Her 1933 expedition to Jan Mayen Island and the east coast of Greenland was one of the most interesting. Academics on the expedition pushed their agendas, some unhappy with female leadership, sought to undermine her ability. Ego threatened teamwork among a few of the reasearchers. J. Harlan Bretz, an American geologist and N.E. Odell, a British geologists correspondence after the expedition reflect their dislike of Louise and they continued to undermine her post expedition by violating the terms of their agreement about the rights to discoveries and publication of findings. A note in a bottle connected to a 1897 failed balloning expedition was found during that trip. Their ship ran aground and innovate measures were taken to save it, they connected a cable to an iceberg, finally able to float the ship at high tide by winching.

    History comes to life in this biography. The author’s attention to detail is an important part of this book. the photographs and maps make it even more interesting. Louise was the recipient of numerous awards from various governments for her work. What I enjoyed most is how Kafarowski brought Miss Boyd to life. It felt as if one could sit down with Louise and talk about her expeditions into the Arctic, about the plants she found, the maps she made, the fjords she explored, and look at the hundreds of photographs she took. She was first woman to fly over the north pole. Her expeditions after 1933 were also marred by researchers complaining about her leadership, but without a doubt, she was one of the most successful explorers of her time.

    Biography fans will enjoy the story of this strong, intelligent and courageous woman.
