From the Publisher:

"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 'The South Pole'... is less well-known than his rival's, in part because he is less of a literary stylist, but also, perhaps, because he survived the journey.

"His book is a riveting first-hand account of a truly professional expedition; Amundsen's heroism is understated, but it is heroism nonetheless."

--The Times of London, June 23 2001

About the Author:

Roald Amundsen, a Norwegian polar explorer (1872-1928), was the first man to reach the South Pole. He was also the first to navigate the Northwest Passage, and later may have been the first to fly over the North Pole. While flying on a rescue mission in 1928, Amundsen was killed when his plane crashed into the Arctic Ocean.
