In July, 1879, George Melville led an expedition that was supposed to go from San Francisco through the Bearing Strait and on to Wrangel Island, near the Siberian coast. However, the boat they were on, Jeannette, was caught in a pack ice east of Wrangel Island. Being an expert engineer, Melville managed to keep Jeannette afloat for almost two years before it got crushed.

They ended up on the eastern side of the river.Tragically, every single member of Lieutenant DeLong’s party died from exposure and starvation, while Melville’s group got rescued. After a short while, Melville sets off to find the remains of DeLong’s group, going through another period of survival in rough Siberian climate, ultimately succeeding at his mission and returning back safely. Along the way, he found DeLong’s journal, in which he wrote regularly unti just a few hours before his death. “In the Lena Delta” follows the story of Melville and DeLong’s expedition, their hardships in the freezing terrain and the climax at the Lena Delta that led to Melville’s rescue and DeLong’s demise.
