About the Author


Apsley Cherry-Garrard (1886-1959) served as a biologist for the ill-fated Antarctic expedition. Haunted by his experiences, the English explorer suffered from clinical depression for the rest of his life and was encouraged by his friend George Bernard Shaw to write this memoir as a form of therapy.
