KIRKUS REVIEW

Paul Siple was the boy scout member of the first Byrd expedition. He went on the second expedition as a member of the Scientific Staff. This is his story of that second expedition. Of vital interest to anyone seriously interested in factual accounts of Antarctic exploration -- but not a book for anyone seeking straight adventure in narrative form. Crammed with solid facts -- spiced with anecdotes about incidents and personalities-occasionally lightened with vivid word pictures of the Antarctic -- good substantial reading.
