That Byrd even decided to live alone through the Antarctic winter to make meteorological recording is extraordinary. That he survived it was even more extraordinary. But I just couldn't understand why they didn't predict that the fumes from the generator would affect him. And why he didn't attach himself to the building by rope as sailors do when he went outside the shack for a walk or to make his routine weather measurements.
Anyway, that aside, it is a interesting saga -- rich in adventure and also the human qualities of team work, self sacrifice and bravery.
The narrator was committed to sharing the drama of the events being unfolded.
