"Little America" chronicles Byrd's historic journey to survey the Antarctic. His cryptic commentary and strange public statements have caused many to believe there was more to his mission(s)--perhaps more to antarctica--than the official record admits. You won't be prepared to delve into this ice-cold enigma unless you have this first-edition first-hand account from the man himself--not, that is, unless you have the Byrd's eye view.
