What a dry, and coyly self-serving account. Amundsen travels one heck of a lot better than he writes. Give this a miss and re-read Scott or Cherry-Garrard, Shackleton, Mawson, anyone else!

Currently reading this absorbing account of the expedition of Amundsen from his own hand. The first third of this book is stupendous with the rise of endurance against the elements as the men and dogs face the extremities of weather in the Antarctic region.
