Roald Amundsen is largely remembered as the man who beat Scott to the South Pole. This gripping biography reveals the full scope of his achievements, including his 1905 discovery of the Northwest Passage and the 1926 expedition that was the first to reach - beyond dispute - the North Pole. It charts the life of the visionary showman who put newly independent Norway on the map, his trailblazing use of technology, and his mysterious disappearance on an Arctic rescue mission in 1928.
