Synopsis: This book describes the drama, humor, human interst and close up look at the explorer.

From Library Journal: A fascinating account of a Harvard dropout who became dog handler on Byrd's 1928-30 expedition to Antarctica. Vaughan has many interesting anecdotes of a life that has been full and varied, as evidenced by the fact that he is 85 and still mushing. The story, like the author's life, suffers a letdown when Vaughan returns from Little America to begin a career in advertising. But the expedition account is riveting, and there are hints of later excitement. The book is a bit unfocused, however, and it is uncertain whether this is an autobiography, a biography of Byrd, or an account of a polar exploration. Recommended wherever general readers are interested in the Antarctic grail.
