Book Summary

An international bestseller since its original publication in 1938, Alone is a unique and utterly absorbing record of the human will to survive.  In march 1934, during his second expedition to Antarctica, Byrd left Little America to live in a tiny hut at Bolling Advance Weather Base.  For the next for and a half months he was the only person at Advance Base, where the temperature fell to -83 degrees, with hurricane winds.  With no hope of rescue before the spring thaw, he was slowly poisoned by carbon monoxide leaking from a defective stove.  What began as a scientific experiment became a struggle for sanity in a dark, freezing, inhuman locale.
