Book Description:

Led by Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912), the British National Antarctic Expedition carried out important scientific research and ambitious sledging journeys during the years 1901-4.

About the Author:

Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) joined the navy at the age of 12. After rising through the ranks on various ships, in 1899 he was offered command of the National Antarctic expedition. Scott and his crew left England on the Discovery in 1901 and spent two years exploring the Antarctic. On his return he was promoted Captain and returned to his duties in the Navy. In 1910 Scott left on his second mission to the Antarctic, this time with the aim of reaching the pole. He reached the pole on 18 January 1912, only to find that Amundsen had beaten him to it. The return journey was beset by bad weather and a relief party failed to reach Scott's group. He made his last entry in his diary on the 29th March. Eight months later a search party found the bodies of Scott and his remaining companions.
