Abstract:

"Admiral Richard E. Byrd is perhaps best known for his flight over the North Pole, but his adventures in Antarctica are even more remarkable. He and his crew built a permanent base on the continent and named it Little America. But that feat was just the beginning - he returned to the continent many more times. ... His small shelter, heated by a stove that emitted carbon monoxide, kept him safe from the extreme cold but endangered the very air he breathed. This is a tale of personal courage and dedication, all set against a backdrop of one of the harshest environments on Earth."--Page 4 of cover.
