At last we got away, on October 19. The weather for the past few days had not been altogether reliable; now windy, now calm now snowing, now clear: regular spring weather, in other words. That day it continued unsettled; it was misty and thick in the morning, and did not promise well for the day, but by 9.30 there was a light breeze from the east, and at the same time it cleared.

Fabulous book. A bit too detailed at times, but very informative for an interested reader. This original volumes for this book were written by Amundsen shortly after his trip. The outdated prose is a joy to read, but the treatment of the dogs seems harsh today. Quite a long story, but worth the effort. Honestly written, with the exception of Amundsen's explanation of the veil of secrecy prior to departure for the South Pole.
Historicly correct and interesting. Must read.
