The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

This book features the life of an explorer who traveled the world, beginning with a trip to the Philippines by himself at the age of 12.  He was in the Navy, made the first airmail flight across the Atlantic, the first full-scale exploration of the Antarctic, and the first flight over the South Pole.
