A man of striking intelligence whose brilliance in planning and anticipating the moves of his opponent propelled him into first place.

Such a man, with everything to lose will stop at nothing to secure his goal and consequently his story is a testament to utter brilliance and ruthlessness.
From the author of the highly acclaimed Into the White, and full of life-threatening challenges, deception, disappointments and triumph, Amundsen's Way is an adventure story in the purest sense.
