Undated (likely 1999), probable sole printing of this slim memoir by this member of Byrd's 1946 fourth Antarctic expedition ("Operation Highjump"). Boldly signed by him in blue ballpoint on the half-title page, where he adds "with blessings." Menster (1913-2007) is best known as the first clergyman to visit Antarctica, which he recounts in his memoir "Strong Men South."
