Overview

Although less well known than his famous flight over the North Pole, Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s adventures in Antarctica are just as remarkable. Wide-eyed youngsters will feel the excitement and danger as they read about the isolated and tight little manned station where Byrd lived, separated from his crew; the temperatures that plunged to 60 degrees below zero; and Byrd’s brush with death when a small stove he needed to keep warm—and stay alive—filled the air with carbon monoxide. It’s a tale of personal courage and dedication, all set against a backdrop of perhaps the harshest environment on earth.
