Roald Amundsen "The Last Viking" And The First Man To Reach Both North And South Pole
Roald Amundsen, known as “The Last Viking,” made history by becoming the first person to indisputably reach both the North and South Poles. While that feat grabs the headline, his story incredibly features multiple years trapped in barren ice lands, learning survival skills from the Inuit people, plane crashes, bankruptcies, and a polar bear mauling!
He also fraternized with married women of rich, powerful aristocrats and sailed away from incensed creditors to the furthest corners of the earth. Even his death came mysteriously during a courageous rescue attempt for a former colleague who wronged him. In short, they just don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
