Detailed Product Description
Pennsylvania, 1990. 196 pp, b/w photos. A very clean copy, no writing, no marks, flawless. Hardcover with dust jacket, Fine.

A fascinating account of a Harvard dropout who became dog handler on Byrd's 1928-30 expedition to Antarctica. Vaughan has many interesting anecdotes of a life that has been full and varied, as evidenced by the fact that he is 85 and still mushing. The story, like the author's life, suffers a let down when Vaughan returns from Little America to begin a career in advertising. But the expedition account is riveting, and there are hints of later excitement.
