Abstract

To become a polar explorer in the early 20th century was an exciting call for many, but vocation for just a few properly gifted. The occupation required not only intrepidity and exceptional physical condition, but also talent to convince potential sponsors of the predictability of unpredictable expeditions and nerves to withstand the perpetual fight against time.
