    This is a wonderful collection of photographs from several of the expeditions led by Roald Amundsen, both in the Arctic and Antarctic. Amazingly, they were found by accident and saved from being thrown away.

    These rare photographs of the explorations of the famous North and South Pole Explorer Amundsen are a treasure.

    As opposed to all the badly written adventure fiction books of today, this is an excellent photographic record of Amundsen's adventures. It's a tribute to the man who was among the first to winter in the Antarctic, was the first to reach the South Pole, was the first to fly over the arctic ocean and the North Pole, and was killed while attempting to rescue another expedition that had crashed in the Arctic. A photographic tribute to a truely great man.

    Rarely have I read and re-read a book with as much interest as this one. The pictures in the book was thought lost until re-discovered in a loft in Oslo in 1986. It provides an unusual insight into early polar exploration from both a pictoral and literary perspective
