About this title

Synopsis:

Now in paperback, the real story of Captain Robert Scott's legendary Antarctic quest, told by the man whom the Guinness Book of World Records has proclaimed "the world's greatest living explorer"

In 1911, Captain Robert Scott and his competitor Roald Amundsen conquered the unconquerable: Antarctica. This perilous race to the South Pole claimed the life of Scott and became the stuff of legend, as well as scrutiny. This compelling, meticulously researched history of Captain Scott and his fatal journey, by renowned modern-day explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, holder of 10 expeditionary records, is the definitive account of this hotly debated quest.

Fiennes offers an account of Scott's motivations and aspirations for the Pole, and his historic clash with Amundsen over goals and approaches. He also reveals the unpredictably disastrous weather patterns that led to the extreme cold that ultimately doomed Scott's return trip. Infused with the intensity of fiction and exhibiting an exhaustive eye for detail found in the greatest historical biographies, Race to the Pole is a prodigious achievement and certain to become a classic in the literature of exploration.

About the Author:

Sir Ranulph Fiennes was the first man to reach both Poles on land, and he is the only person to have been awarded two clasps to the Polar Medal for both Antarctic and Arctic regions. In 1993, Fiennes was awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for "human endeavor and charitable services." He is the author of many books, including his autobiography, Living Dangerously, and Mind Over Matter, a harrowing account of his Antarctic expedition. Most recently, he set a world record by running seven marathons in seven days on seven continents. He lives in Somerset, England.
