Bjaaland (1873-1961) was one of 20 members of Roald Amundsen’s South Pole Expedition (1910-12) which was the first to reach the South Pole. He was a member of the land party, a ski champion, a skilled carpenter, and was one of five to reach the pole itself.

This is one of 15 diaries (8 volumes) written by members of the expedition. Only Amundsen’s diary has been translated into English. I have been hoping for an English translation since 2011 but it is unlikely to occur. An important addition to the literature of this historic expedition. In Norwegian, no English translation.
