Hassel (1876-1928) was one of 20 members of Roald Amundsen’s South Pole Expedition (1910-12). He was a member of the land party, serving as a dog driver, and was one of five to reach the pole itself. Prior to this expedition he was with Otto Sverdrup on an attempt to circumnavigate Greenland.

This is one of 15 diaries (8 volumes) written by members of the expedition. Only Amundsen’s diary has been translated into English. I have been hoping for an English translation since 2011 but it is unlikely to occur. An important addition to the literature of this historic expedition. In Norwegian, no English translation.
