Product Overview

In 1933 Antarctica was essentially unexplored. Admiral Richard Byrd launched his Second Expedition to chart the southernmost continent, primarily relying on the muscle power of dog teams and their drivers who skied or ran beside the loaded sledges as they traveled. Stuart Paine was a dog driver, radio operator, and navigator on the fifty-six-man expedition, and his diaries represent the only published contemporary account written from the inside of the Second Expedition. Featuring previously unpublished photographs and illustrations, Paine''s tale is one of the most compelling stories in polar history, surpassing other accounts with its immediacy and adventure as it captures the majesty and mystery of the untouched Antarctic.
