Book Synopsis
LIARS! Vol. 1: Scout to the Pole is a mind bending coming of age romp across the wild and beautiful north slope of Alaska. It is based on the author's experience as one of two Eagle Scouts selected by national competition to accompany U.S. Navy explorers on the 1965 North Pole Expedition. The scouts, nicknamed Nanook and Schnook, were promised it would be another ‘Journey of Discovery’ - a Lewis and Clark adventure across the Northwest Passage. A Journey of Discovery it was. But NOT the one of progress and wonder that was promised. It was a journey into a world of LIES, corruption and incompetence.

Working out of a "Three Stooges" run government research base camp at Barrow, Nanook comes across a bunch of misfit geniuses hiding from society. Ambitious, idealistic and strongly religious, Nanook's most fundamental beliefs are challenged and pulled out from under him. At the same time, the wildness of the Arctic tests every endurance and explorer skill the scouts have.
