Byrd and Igloo: A Polar Adventure
Not just one man and his dog. A daredevil duo whose record-breaking polar missions are told in true facts, maps and diary entries. Not many dogs get to travel from the North Pole to the South Pole. But what’s the perfect name for one who does? Igloo! This book is the true story of Admiral Richard E. Byrd and his faithful fox terrier. Byrd was a polar explorer and pioneering aviator. Igloo was a scrappy mongrel rescued from the streets of Washington DC. From one end of the world to another – through adventures thick and thin, and the race to reach the North Pole – these two were friends till the end.
