With Byrd at the South Pole the story of Little America

Byrd's establishment of Little America and the spectacular first flight over the South Pole--part publicity stunt, part scientific milestone--marked the end of an era. This little-seen record of the 1928-1930 adventure opens with a short introduction by Rear-Admiral Byrd detailing the aims of the expedition and the bravery of previous explorers to the Pole.
