KIRKUS REVIEW

Author Sperry, winner of the 1941 Newbery Award for his of , turns his attention from the South Seas to concentrate his attention on the North and South Poles. This constitutes a general and elementary introduction to geography, vegetation, and animal life there and summarizes the history of the exploration parties instrumental in charting the Arctic and the Antarctic. This factual telling is in no way distinguished by the literary quality of its prose. Valuable as a social-studies aid.
