Description

Behind the great polar explorers of the early twentieth century – Amundsen, Shackleton, Scott in the South and Peary in the North – looms the spirit of Fridtjof Nansen (1861-1930), the father of modern polar exploration.

Roland Huntford´s remarkable biography draws on a wealth of new material, including diaries and other hitherto untapped documents. It uncovers a restless, unquiet, Faustian spirit, a Renaissance man born out of his time, a pioneer in oceanography and skiing, one of the founders of neurology, an artist, historian and diplomat. Above all, Nansen illustrates Carlyle´s dictum that `the history of the world but the biography of great men`.
