Canmore author Stephen Bown rediscovers greatest Arctic explorer, Roald Amundsen

Canmore author Stephen Bown rediscovers greatest Arctic explorer, Roald Amundsen | Antarctica | Scoop.it
When researching his new book Stephen Bown found no shortage of material about Roald Amundsen, the eccentric and driven Norwegian explorer who was the first to conquer both the South and North Poles. For months, Bown’s Canmore home was filled with piles of papers that he had photocopied from the New York Times digital archives. Over the first 20 years of the 20th Century, the Gray Lady printed more than 400 stories about Amundsen. If they weren’t writing about his adventures during the so-called “Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration,” they would focus on his lectures, his larger-than-life persona or, eventually, his spectacular 1928 death somewhere in the Barents Sea.
