Johansen (1867-1913) was one of 20 members of Roald Amundsen’s South Pole Expedition (1910-12). He was a member of the land party, an excellent skier, dog driver, and gymnast. He had a falling out with Amundsen resulting in Johansen being dropped from the polar party. Prior to this expedition, he was with Fridtjof Nansen and set a furthest north record in 1895.

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.
