Already famous for his flights over the North and South Poles, Admiral Richard E. Byrd (1888-1957) set out in 1934 on what would become his most harrowing adventure. Isolated in the polar night with no hope of rescue until spring, Byrd began suffering inexplicable symptoms of mental and physical illness. ALONE is the remarkable story of his struggle to save his life and his sanity.
