Summary
"How will history view Roald Amundsen? Will he be remembered for his daring deeds, his discipline, or merely his deception? Bold, secretive and utterly uncompromising, renowned Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen will stop at nother to execute his latest plan -- to be first to reach the southernmost point on the globe. Haunted by the prospect of his rival Captain Scott scooping the prize, Amundsen pushes himself and his men beyond the bounds of human experience and ever deeper into the Antarctic unknown, where penetrating cold and uncharted obstacles reign supreme. The stakes are high. Skis and dogs will lend him speed. But can he count on his men's loyalty to the very end?" --Back cover
Summary
But how will history view Roald Amundsen? he wonders to himself. Will I be remembered for my dedication, my discipline, my daring deeds? Or only for my deception? Roald Amundsen hero or villain? Amundsen's South Polar conquest is an extraordinary tale that combines risk, intrigue and personal conflict. A man of striking intelligence and a single-minded thirst for world records, Amundsen's astute planning and shrewd strategy propelled him into first place. Such a man, with everything to lose, will stop at nothing to secure his goal. His story is a testament to utter brilliance and ruthlessness. From the author of the highly acclaimed Into the White, and full of life-threatening challenges, deception, disappointments and triumph, Amundsen's Way is an adventure story in the purest sense.
