This scarce book was first published in 1908. It is a fascinating account of the Norwegian polar explorer, Amundsen's, exploration of the Northwest Passage. Not only the first person to traverse the Passage, Amundsen was also the first to reach the North and South Poles. A fascinating autobiographical report from a bygone era of exploration and adventure. Contents: Introduction, Making for the Polar Sea, In Virgin Water, The First Winter, Towards the Pole, Summer, The Second Winter, The Inhabitants at the Magnetic North Pole Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
