Five years after his first expedition to the Antarctic, Richard Byrd was back--spending a long polar winter alone in a tiny hut buried in the ice, 123 miles south of the main base and the team of men he brought with him. Sick, dazed, weakened, and with poisonous fumes from a stove nearly killing him, he struggled to remain alive in this isolated hut--knowing that no help could reach him for months. Byrd's courage and determination to survive alone at the bottom otf the world is a gripping tale of personal bravery.
