Product description

Captain Robert F. Scott's famed expedition to the South Pole from 1910-1912 propelled him in the international spotlight. Scott quickly ascended the ranks in the Royal Navy, becoming a master. His harrowing journey to Antarctica is presented in these journals with unprecedented realism and lucidity. The toils, the troubles, and the successes are brought to life through Scott's pen. His journals create a vivid narrative of his Terra Nova trek-the scientific findings, the nautical strategy, the social dynamics are all recounted in colorful prose. Though Scott's journey ended in tragedy, the inspiring expedition made him a national hero.
