Description
 
In 1925 Dutch artist Willem van der Does talked his way aboard a Norwegian whaler & made a daring, often dangerous voyage to Antarctica. This is the riveting eyewitness account of his 9-month ocean journey, including 141 original illus. by van der Does. The first Dutchman ever to set foot in Antarctica, he grippingly captures the excitement, fascination, & fear generated by life in the coldest place on earth. His travelogue chronicles an amazing range of adventures, from the harpooning & processing of whales at sea to a ski trip atop the forbidding Ross Ice Shelf, & he renders much of what he saw in distinctive pen-&-ink illustrations. First pub. in the Dutch E. Indies in 1934 & later in the Netherlands, this historical gem is now available in English.
