One of the greatest adventures of modern times, R.F. Scott's expedition to the South Pole pitted him and his team not only against the elements, but also against the Norwegian team, led by Amundsen. In the end Scott was beaten by both. Amundsen arrived at the pole a month before Scott and on the return trip the party perished in the freezing cold. This book present's Scott's journal entries from preparations for the trip in New Zealand to his final message before he died, written just eleven miles from base camp and safety. The work also features many superb photographs depicting members of the party and the pristine Antarctic landscape. By turns informative, humorous, riveting and tragic the journals, republished in their entirety, are sure to thrill a new generation of readers.

Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) led two expeditions to the Antarctic, the first in the Discovery (1900-04) and the second (1910-12) in the Terra Nova. These journals were found, along with Scott's body, several months after his death.Review:
