Risking his life in the coldest part of the world, Matthew Henson was the first American to discover the North Pole, as part of Robert Peary’s expedition. He spent his life as a young boy traveling the world on the high seas and craved the life of an explorer. Henson’s survival skills in the Artic were the difference between death and the greatest discovery of this life. For 18 years, he searched for what was his to discover. To keep him warm in these sub-freezing temperatures, Henson is wrapped from head to toe in fur and wears goggles to shield his face against the snow. He also comes with snowshoes, a grappling hook, ice axe, sextant and rope to help him blaze the trail through ice and snow. Multiple joints give Henson flexibility to strike any position to trek any terrain.
