About this title

Synopsis:

Antarctic explorer Robert Falcon Scott, who died near the South Pole in 1912, initially won his fame with a remarkable trip to Antarctica in 1901, aboard the Discovery. During this journey, Scott became the first man to see the South Polar ice cap and achieved a new 'farthest south' record. He explored the continent from the air via balloon and made a trip across the frozen wastes with Ernest Shakleton. In Voyage of the Discovery, the only work he lived to see published, Scott tells of his exciting and at times horrifying journey, in which he and his men faced blizzards, snow-blindness, the deaths of two crewmates, and a ship so trapped by ice that only dynamite could free it.

Review:

[Scott] has a keen eye for his surroundings and, as always, travel in the southern extremes lends itself to crackerjack adventure. (Denver Post)

Capt. Scott has written a book that will have a conspicuous place among the annals of polar effort, and it is worthy of it. (The New York Times)

Captain Scott has done a splendid piece of work; not the least part of it is the production of the ablest and most interesting record of travel to which the present century has given birth. (The Spectator)
