KIRKUS REVIEW

The author retells the stories of his flights across the North Pole swiftly and with great heart. The Amundsen Norge flight using one of the author's own dirigibles, successfully circled the North Polar Sea. Two years later Nobile conquered other areas only to meet sudden catastrophe. He also explores the professional rivalry and villification between Amundsen and himself. This is a slight but noble testament bound to spark the spirit of adventurous souls anywhere.
