Together they offer a unique insight into how Amundsen presented his expeditions when face to face with an international audience. They also provide the first pictorial account of his successful unlocking of the Northwest Passage and the expedition to the South Pole ... The 90-page appendix includes many of the letters, articles, brochures and pamphlets related to Amundsen"s lecture tours." (from back cover)
