Through the Frozen Frontier: The Exploration of Antarctica.

Dufek, George. US Navy Admiral and leader of Operation Deep Freeze, 1956-60

A concise young-adult traversal of much of Antarctic exploration history through Deep Freeze in 1958 plus a prediction of “Antarctic in the Year 2000,” a bit off the mark. Dufek does accept the classic American myths of polar exploration, Peary and Byrd firsts at North Pole, and a few others, though perhaps not surprising for the time he was writing. Surprising was the implication that he had no problem incidents with Finn Ronne. At least he proudly says that no incidents were reported.

Chapter on living in the Antarctica does mention a well-stocked library.
