    DescriptionThis second volume in Captain Scott's epic narrative of his first expedition to the Antarctic sees the perilous journey continue where it left off in Volume One (also published by Nonsuch). It provides a detailed record of every aspect of the expedition which set out from Dundee in 1901, from the realities of the daily routine to their wonder at discovering strange, awe-inspiring landscapes, as well as the trials of harsh weather conditions, food shortages and illness. Beautifully illustrated with photographs and drawings, by E.A. Wilson, it brings to life the realities of the dangerous expedition that Scott and his companions undertook to a region which would, ultimately, cost the author his life.

    Author Information
    Robert Falcon Scott was a British naval officer and Antarctic explorer, born into a naval family in Plymouth in 1868. He commanded two expeditions to Antarctica, one in 1901-04 and the other in 1910-1912, the latter from which he and his companions did not return. He wrote The Voyage of the Discovery, an account of his first expedition, on his return to England in 1905, and the diaries and scientific findings of his second, Scott's Last Expedition, were published posthumously in 1913.
