Today the North and South Poles are home to research stations and film crews, but just a century ago they were forbidding lands seldom seen by human eyes. Those who journeyed there were the last true explorers, and one of the most successful ever was Roald Amundsen. Known as "the last of the Vikings," the Norwegian-born Amundsen began his career of adventure at fifteen, and by forty he had become the first man to reach both the North and South Poles. In "South with the Sun," swimmer and adventurer Lynne Cox gives an account of Amundsen's life and expeditions while detailing her own experiences swimming (without a wetsuit) in those same polar regions. At once a biography, history, and memoir, the book holds something for any lover of adventure.
