Ikke så mye å skrive om denne boken egentlig, det meste er kjent fra før.

Men det var en ganske interessant bok som var vel verdt verdt å lese.

Roald Amundsen:

My Life as an Explorer is a classic of Polar literature, written by one man to do more to further the exploration of both Polar regions than any other person.

First sailing to the Antarctic in the 1899 Belgian expedition, Amundsen never lost his passion for exploring, following this trip with a journey around the top of Canada to prove the existence of the North West Passage between 1903 and 1906. Setting sail for the Antarctic a full month or so after Scott, Amundsen still managed to beat the British team to the Pole by a full month.

Making a lot of money out of shipping during the First World War, Amundsen followed his epic journeys by being only the second man to travel around the top of Siberia from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, then flying over the North Pole by airship.

Roald Amundsen died in 1928.
