The Roof at the Bottom of the World Discovering the Transantarctic MountainsDF #9734 the mountain range in the early s Robert Falcon Scott Ernest Shackleton Roald Amundsen Richard Byrd and scientists participating in the International Geophysical Year From these records Stump is now able to trace the actual routes Roof at the Bottom of Epubof the early explorers with unprecedented accuracy With maps old and new stunning photographs never before published and tales of intrepid explorers this book takes the armchair traveler on an expedition to the Antarctic wilderness that few have ever see.
