Two planks and a passion : the dramatic history of skiing by Roland Huntford( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roland Huntford's history of the ski begins 20,000 years ago in the last ice age on the icy tundra of an unformed earth. Man is a travelling animal, and on these icy slopes siding began as a means of survival." "This is the story of how siding evolved into a modern recreation from a prehistoric struggle for survival, Huntford puts the history of skiing into its social and political contexts, illustrating its spread across the globe and importance in all facets of life. It is the first comprehensive history of skiing to make use of original Old Norse and Russian sources, as well as using ancient Greek, Roman, Chinese and Arabic works. Huntford draws on his vast knowledge of Scandinavian history and politics as well as his unique insight into polar exploration to produce the definitive history of the ski."--Jacket
Race for the South Pole : the expedition diaries of Scott and Amundsen by Roland Huntford( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Side by side, day by day, Huntford lets Scott and Amundsen speak for themselves, placing the diary entries of each (Scott's family had subtely edited the original). He includes superb original maps and photographs, and the never-before-translated diary of Amudsen's charismatic lead skier, Olav Bjaalund, which he translated, and an excellent introduction setting the scene. Scott, not surprisingly, pales compared to the easy competence of the Norwegians, who treated the whole thing, as Huntford explains, as a sporting contest
