Illustrated with stunning color images throughout, the story of one of the most famous tales of heroic adventure from any age

In November 1910, Robert Falcon Scott set off from New Zealand on the greatest quest of the Heroic Age of Polar Exploration—to reach the South Pole in Antarctica, the most remote, forbidding place on Earth. This book tells the story of this historic and momentous expedition, the characters that were a part of it, and their incredible feats of endurance. Besides the well-known South Pole trek itself, diary extracts and engaging stories show what daily life was like for Scott and his crew, what food they ate, where they slept, what equipment they used, and the scientific work that was undertaken. Stunning photographs taken during the expedition and images of original artifacts from Scott's base camp illuminate this epic story.
