Rose, utilizing Byrd’s recently available papers together with those of his supporters and detractors, presents the first complete, balance biography of one of recent history’s most dynamic figures. Explorer covers the breath of Byrd’s astonishing life, from the early days of naval aviation through his years of political activism to his final efforts to dominate Washington’s growing interest in Antarctica. Rose recounts with particular care Byrd’s two privately mounted South Pole expeditions, bringing to bear new research that adds considerable depth to what we already know.
