South Pole : The British Antarctic Expedition Hardback
Part of the Classics series
Although it's a piece of history learned by every British student, the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913 remains an epic story unknown to many.
In this ultimate showing of life and boundless bravery, Robert F.
Scott and his five-man team battled the elements--traveling through subzero temperatures with motor sledges and ponies--in the hope of being the first to reach this uninhabited territory.
Arriving at the South Pole on January 18, 1912, the adventurers were greeted by their worst nightmare: a Norwegian flag.
Disheartened and badly frostbitten, they trudged back toward their boat, only to die just eleven miles from the next depot.
Featuring a collection of stunning black-and-white photography alongside entries from Scott's harrowing diary, this volume starkly presents this well-documented journey.
