Rate this:
Disappointed to learn that Americans Peary and Henson had reached the long-sought after North Pole before him, Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, set out secretly for the South Pole in 1910. The race to discover the South Pole was on! This fascinating new book reveals how Amundsen's years of arctic training, expert dog-handling skills, and luck in finding a quicker route, allowed him to reach the South Pole more than a month before his closest rival.
