9780099561385: The Last Expedition (Vintage Classics)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SIR RANULPH FIENNES

The Last Expedition is Captain Scott's gripping account of his expedition to the South Pole in 1910-12. It was meant to be a voyage of scientific discovery and a heroic exploration of the last unconquered wilderness. Scott's expedition, carried in the Terra Nova, pitted him and his team not only against the elements but also against the Norwegian explorer, Amundsen. Ultimately, Scott was beaten by both. The journals are full of incident and drama, courage and endurance, hope and bitter disappointment.

These journals were found, along with Scott's body, several months after his death and just 11 miles from base camp and safety.

Review:

"The death of Captain Oates ("I am just going outside and may be some time") and Scott's last entry ("For God's sake look after our people") have become the stuff of legend, but what stands out is his skill as a writer. Unlike Amundsen, who simply raced to the South Pole, Scott took a more leisurely, scientific interest in everything he saw, making notes on the "green ghostly light" of dawn, the changeable weather, the blizzards, the penguins, the killer whales, even his own dogs and ponies. He has nothing but praise for his men" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

Centenary of Captain Scott's expedition to the South Pole. This is 'the most gripping story of polar exploration ever written' - Sir Ranulph Fiennes
