Synopsis: The unknown story of Scott's Northern party and their desperate struggle for survival.

Lost to history until now, The Longest Winter is not only one of the greatest unknown survival stories to come out of the heroic age of polar exploration, it's easily one of the greatest survival stories ever. In addition to the doomed team Scott was leading back from the South Pole in 1912, there was a six-member scientific expedition stranded several hundred miles to the north. The men endured almost seven months in one of the harshest climates on earth, living in an igloo dug out of a snowdrift. What makes their story uniquely compelling is that it is primarily based on the unpublished diaries of the members, particularly the man who came to be the hero of the party, Dr. Murray Levick. His day-to-day entries offer a rare glimpse into the psychology of a group of relative strangers who must depend on each other for survival while suffering through subzero weather, starvation, dysentery, and mental breakdowns. They finally embarked on a grueling 37-day, 230-mile journey to an unknown end; yet all six men survived—to a large degree because of Dr. Levick—only to learn the terrible fate of the polar party. 27 b/w photographs.

About the Author: Katherine Lambert was formerly editor of the World Expeditionary Association's Expedition magazine. She lives in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England.
