Nice story about Amundsen frozen in the ice in the Antarctic on the Belgica in 1897.


// Eventually, penguins began flocking to the ship and the birds were — Cook wrote — “of equal interest to the naturalist and the cook.” He began eating penguins. .... The crew learned in their final months that they could summon both penguins and seals to the ship by simply playing a tune on their cornet.//
