The South Pole (Illustrated)

Volume 1 By:
The South Pole (Illustrated)
The South Pole by Roald Amundsen tells the story of the author's trek to the Antarctic region. Roald Amundsen led the first expedition to reach the South Pole, on December 14, 1911. His account, entitled The South Pole: An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the Fram, 1910-1912, tells how the team endured frostbite, snow blindness, and other horrors to reach their destination. Roald Amundsen planted the Norwegian flag on the South Pole on December 14, 1911, a full month before Robert Falcon Scott arrived on the same spot. Amundsen's book is a riveting first-hand account of a truly heroic expedition. The journey to the South Pole remains Roald Amundsen's masterpiece, the culmination of the classical age of Polar exploration and, perhaps, the greatest snow journey ever made.
