Synopsis: 'Had we lived, I should have had a tale to tell...which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman. These rough notes and our bodies must tell the tale' Robert Falcon Scott's 'message to the public' c. 29 March 1912 Through Beau Riffenburgh's narrative and the perfectly composed images of Herbert Ponting, With Scott to the Pole tells the story of the triumph and tragedy of Scott's 1910-13 expedition to the South Pole. Along with four companions, the explorer reached the pole only to be bitterly disappointed to discover the Norwegian flag planted there by Roald Amundsen. Scott and his men could no longer hope to secure the first attainment of the South Pole for the British Empire, and their despondency shows in the photographs that survived them. Yet with grit and courage they started on the 800 mile return from the pole. A harrowing time ensued. By the time they were within 11 miles of a depot which would have saved them they had already lost two members of the expedition, and it was at this point that Scott and his remaining two companions were overcome by a blizzard and died. With Scott to the Pole is a fitting tribute not only to Ponting 's spell-binding aesthetic vision, but also to a magnificent story of adventure and heroism.
About the Author: Herbert Ponting was born in England in 1870. After rejecting a career in banking he spent a decade travelling and taking photographs in China, India, Japan, Spain, the Alps and the USA. When he joined Scott's expedition as official photographer his photographs established him as one of the great photographers of the twentieth century. He died in 1935. Dr Beau Riffenburgh is an historian specialising in Antarctic and Arctic exploration. His most recent book, Nimrod: Ernest Shackleton and the Extraordinary Story of the 1907-09 British Antarctic Expedition, is published by Bloomsbury. Dr Liz Cruwys divides her time between being a marine biologist at Cambridge and writing. She has written books on medieval history and architecture, as well as medieval novels published under a pseudonym. HJP ('Douglas') Arnold is an award-winning biographer who has written two books on Ponting's life and work, one of which is Photographer of the World. He is a contributor to the British Journal of Photography.
