This book attempts to explain how Roald Amundsen won the race to the South Pole. It contains information and original photos gleaned from his expeditions and meticulous planning and preparations for many years. It reveals his ability to foresee the challenges ahead and change plans when new factors came into play, and it presents his well-qualified team members and his hard earned lessons from the Arctic. Luck is certainly a factor when skiing 3000 km through some of the coldest and toughest terrain on Earth, but as you will see, luck had very little to do with Amundsen's success.
