The Longest Winter : Scott's Other Heroes, Paperback Book

The Longest Winter : Scott's Other Heroes Paperback


Scott's 'Northern Party' played an important role in his iconic last expedition, but how did they survive?

Their tents were torn, their food was nearly finished and the ship had failed to pick them up as winter approached.

Stranded and desperate, the six men dug out an ice cave with no room to stand upright.

Circumstances forced them closer together and somehow they made it through the longest winter.

Working from diaries, journals and letters written by expedition members, Meredith Hooper tells the intensely human story of Scott's other expedition.
