This is the story of one of Britain's most famous expedition ships put together from accounts recorded by men who sailed in her. It covers a sixty year history of the ship built at Dundee by a famous Scottish shipbuilding company for the late 19th century days of whaling and sealing before coal, gas and electricity took over from animal oils in domestic and commercial use. The Terra Nova operated from her home port of Dundee and afterwards St. John's, Newfoundland, when a sea-going career in the sealfishery during those times brought a hard way of life with many human losses and tragedies.
