Admiral Byrd is a daring American explorer of the North and South Pole. On one of his many fearless expeditions he stayed all alone for forty days in an ice-bound shack at an advanced outpost. His mates were happy to find him still alive when they returned. His maps and reports about these little-known regions won him twenty decorations and are proving very valuable to the United States today.
