It's worth knowing that next up for Amundsen was reaching the South Pole. Reading his accounts of learning from the Eskimo on such matters as clothing, working with dog teams, and survival skills in a forbidding landscape - it's like training day for him and his crew. It's also a tribute to him that he was so thorough and painstaking in his planning. The devil is in the details : nowhere is that more apparent than comparing Amundsen's success in the Anarctic to Scott 's.

A Triumph in perservearence

Hands down the finiest piece of literature on polar explation either North or South ever penned. Amundsen schools them all: better english, storytelling, bravery and professionalism to mention a few. Read, share and know for yourself. As an Alaskan, after reading this epic I feel I've been ceated out of part of my own countries history 40 years late. I bought two copies and sent them to colleages..

A polar explorer at the turn of the late 19th century.

Amundsen led the first expedition to successfully traverse the Northwest Passage and he was the first person to reach both the North and South Poles.
