Amundsen and Scott's Race to the South Pole Summary

Amundsen and Scott's Race to the South Pole by Liz Gogerly

When did humans first reach the South Pole? Why was there a race to get there? What discoveries did the first people to reach the Pole make? Take a journey back in time, and discover the facts behind a race that fascinated the world. It was a race between rival expeditions whose leaders both became heroes. A race in which some competitors paid the ultimate price--their lives. Find out about the difficulties the expeditions faced: the coldest temperatures on Earth, the high winds and storms, and the long distances they had to cross. Learn more about the world's harshest environment--the Antarctic--and the brave men who battled across it in the hope of victory.
