Detailed Product Description
London, Robert Hale Ltd., 1963, 1st edition. 189 pp, b/w photos, illustrations. Hardcover with chipped dust jacket and minor age spots. Near Fine.

The Opposite Poles of this book are Sir Vivian Fuchs and Sir Edmund Hillary. McKenzie details the sensation that was Hillary's decision to dash for the pole instead of turning back from his last supply dump, and Fuch's subsequent decision to continue on after being advised by Hillary to wait until the next season. McKenzie was a journalist at the pole when Fuchs and Hillary met, giving him an opportunity to observe the interplay of personalities first hand.
