Description - Amundsen's Way: The Race to the South Pole by Joanna Grochowicz
How will history view Roald Amundsen? Will he be remembered for his daring deeds, his discipline, or merely his 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 employed astute planning and shrewd strategy to propel 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.
