    What Paul Theroux says

    OK. I haven't read it yet, I only just brought it home. To counter one of the very negative reviews I see here, however, allow me to tell you why I bought it. Because I just finished Paul Theroux's "Fresh Air Fiend" (I love Theroux's travel books), in which he described this as the adventure book which he reccomends to those who ask him, "What's the best adventure/travel book you have ever read."

    a classic of polar exploration

    As one who has done field research in Antarctica, I can vouch for this classic in the field. Cheery-Gerard was the youngest member of the Scott's 2nd expedition. His narrative of his mid-winter travels to retrieve penguin eggs is awe inspiring.

    For those who would like a scientific inquiry into how weather was the critical element in the demise of Scott and his polar party, read Susan Solomon's 'The Coldest March.' Simply excellent.

    Typically Regarded as the Best Adventure Book Ever Written

    This book typically appears at the top of any list of the best adventure books of all time, an assertion easily verified on the Internet. The most compelling story of endurance I have ever read. Detailed? Of course it's detailed! It's written by one of the surviving members of the expedition.
