Amundsen, R. (n.d.). The South Pole, Volume 1. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. THE History of the South Pole. This retrospective chapter has here been greatly condensed, as the ground is already covered, for English readers, by Dr. H. R. Mill?s ?The Siege of the South Pole,? Sir Ernest Shackleton?s ?The Heart of the Antarctic,? and other works. Tr. ?Life is a ball In the hands of chance.? Brisbane, Queensland, April 13, 1912. Here I am, sitting in the shade of palms, surrounded by the most wonderful vegetation, enjoying the most magnificent fruits, and writing ? the history of the South Pole. What an infinite distance seems to separate that region from these surroundings! And yet it is only four months since my gallant comrades and I reached the coveted spot.
