Synopsis: Set in the context of Roald Amundsen's life and explorations with captions drawn from previously unpublished notes, this photographic collection offers an unprecedented illustrated tour of Amundsen's unrivaled achievements in Arctic exploration

From Library Journal: A serendipitous discovery in 1986 by the widow of the great Norwegian explorer's nephew uncovered the glass "lantern slides" taken by Amundsen and his cohorts on Amundsen's three most important expeditions: through the Northwest Passage in 1903; the triumphant 1911 attainment of the South Pole; and along the Siberian Coast and through the North East Passage in 1918. The 100 photographs in this handsome book comprise a unique panorama of shipboard life, crews, natives, sled dogs, equipment, and the overland treks. There is a brisk, informative text. A blend of "immediacy, artlessness, and authenticity," comments Huntford. Recommended. Jerry Maioli, Western Lib. Network, Olympia, Wash.
