Synopsis: Roald Amundsen records his race to be the first man to reach the South Pole. Amundsen's expertise enabled him to succeed where his predecessors, and competitors, did not. His rival Captain Robert F. Scott not only failed to reach the Pole first, but―due to poor preparation and miscalculation―died with the rest of his party on their return trip. The South Pole remains one of the greatest and most important books on polar exploration.
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."
