Average Rating:
Rate this:
The untold story of the great polar explorer who conquered the world's last unknown places, before vanishing in a daring bid to rescue his nemesis. Larger than life, arrogant and competitive, Roald Amundsen was also a meticulous organizer and planner, willing to learn from the mistakes of others, and humble enough to seek the advice of indigenous peoples skilled in arctic survival. Drawing on hundreds of recently uncovered press clippings, "The Last Viking" goes beyond Amundsen's conflicted legacy to reveal a humorous, self-deprecating storyteller who was also a visionary and showman.

Font size waaaaay too small to read on iPhone! Even when 3M reader is set to max size. I've never had this problem with any other ebook.
