Although it's a piece of history learned by every British student, the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913 remains an epic story unknown to many. In this ultimate showing of life and boundless bravery, Robert F. Scott and his five-man team battled the elements—traveling through subzero temperatures with motor sledges and ponies—in the hope of being the first to reach this uninhabited territory.Arriving at the South Pole on January 18, 1913, the adventurers were greeted by their worst nightmare: a Norwegian flag. Disheartened and badly frostbitten, they trudged back toward their boat, only to die just eleven miles from the next depot. This well-documented journey is starkly relived in this cloth-bound, over-sized edition featuring a historic collection of stunning black-and-white photography on fine paper, with tip-on images, a ribbon bookmark, and excerpts from Scott's harrowing diary uniquely crafted in calligraphy.
