Discovery: The Story of the Second Byrd Anatarctic Expedition

Author(s): Richard E. Byrd

Antarctica and the Sub-Antarctic | Secondhand

From the moment Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Jr. first left Anarctica, he knew he would return. Both the scope of the strange land and the uncharted scientific promise it held were too much to leave behind forever. Launched during the Great Depression amid great public skepticism, and with funding at its toughest to secure, this second Antarctic journey proved as daring, eventful, and inspiring as any Byrd ever embarked upon.
