Format: Paperback
on page 189, it mentioned that Amundsen first used dogs to cross Greenland - that should be his mentor, Nansen.

The explorers' diary excerpts read quite boring as they are mostly about wind, snow, temperature, accident, ration, food etc...I think what would attract regular readers more are human interactions: the friendship, the competition, the jealousy, intrigues, etc, etc, but the diaries are more like matter-of-fact reports on physical conditions of the Antarctica and the explorations. What happened in their hearts facing such extreme challenges; what happened between them? what happened between them and the animals there? If they put more such contents there, should be a more attractive read...
