Graphic story in word and pictures of the Byrd Antarctic expedition told for the first time. Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd left the States on October 13, 1928, aboard the C.A. Larsen, headed for New Zealand. The expedition ultimately would reach the Ross Ice Shelf on December 28, 1928. Days of laborious unloading and building shelters followed the Expedition's arrival in Antarctica, resulting in a complete village that Byrd named "Little America" and contained the first generator of electricity in Antarctica.
