Sledges and sledging in polar regions / Michael Pearson.

Title: Sledges and sledging in polar regions / Michael Pearson.
Author(s): Pearson, Michael.
Date: 1995.
In: Polar Record. (1995.), Vol. 31(176) (1995)
Abstract: Reviews range of indigenous sledges and development of polar sledge types based on indigenous ski-runner, edge-runner, and toboggan styles of sledges. Considers development of Nansen sledge, which became norm in Antarctica. Discusses issues and debates involving man-hauling versus dog-hauling, and relative effectiveness of sledges and motive power as shown by recorded sledging performances.
