"The South Pole, Volumes 1 and 2" by Roald Amundsen

"The Home of the Blizzard" by Douglas Mawson
And then, quite suddenly, the hard surface gave place to regular sastrugi, and their horizon leveled in every direction.
"The Voyages of Captain Scott" by Charles Turley
Now in the land of big sastrugi: Erebus is beginning to look small, but we could see an unusually big smoke from the crater all day.
"The Worst Journey in the World, Volumes 1 and 2" by Apsley Cherry-Garrard
