Upwards – Roald Amundsen's Spectacular Air Voyages tells an exciting and dramatic portion of Norwegian polar history. Amundsen's pioneering work with airplanes and airships led the exploration of the polar regions into a new era, while simultaneously creating optimism for technology in the Nordic region. Roald Amundsen's disappearance during the dramatic rescue mission to find Umberto Nobile and other expeditions is told with a vivid style that has made Bjørn Ousland's polar books so popular. Today, he is one of the premier nonfiction writers we have in this visual form.
