Originally published in 1913, this volume contains a fascinating and detailed account of Sir Robert Falcon Scott's journey to the South Pole. Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868 - 1912) was an explorer and officer in the British Royal Navy. He famously captained two expeditions to the Antarctic regions: the 'Discovery Expedition' of 1901, and the infamous 'Terra Nova Expedition' of 1910. Offering a complete collection of Scott's diary entries from his last expedition, this book is unparalleled in its insight and detail. It constitutes a must-read for anyone interested in this famous explorative journey. Many vintage texts such as this had been becoming increasingly scarce or expensive. This volume is now republished in an available, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
