About this book

Story of Admiral Richard E Byrd's second Antarctic expedition. When he set out on this adventure in 1934 with the aim of spending 6 months alone gathering weather data he was already an international hero, for having piloted the first flights over the North and South Poles.

Better than most modern explanations, Byrd's book shows why men and women still cast themselves into danger in remote parts of the world. - The Los Angeles Times Book Review
