You would think it would be the days and days of temps from -40 to -60 that would get to a person. Instead it's all the things inside his shelter that affected Byrd. Whether he suspected it or not, he had to fight symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning from badly vented equipment. It's a miracle he made it through. He did keep a good diary and the story of solitary life at a one-man weather station were very interesting.

This is an account of Byrd's sojourn at a very isolated weather station one cold winter in Antarctica, spent alone. One feels that it was written for posterity rather than as a true account. I prefer the British, understated diaries. It pales beside Cherry-Garrard's "The Worst Journey in the World."
