Detailed Product Description
New York, 1987, 1st US edition. 306 pp, color and b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Very Good to Fine.

A modern expedition that followed Captain Robert Falcon Scott's 1912 route across Antarctica to the South Pole. In 1985 British explorers Robert Swan, Robert Mear and Gareth Wood marched 883 miles to the Pole in total isolation without radio link and backup bases. Pursuing their goal in temperatures of -40 degrees F, they reached it six days ahead of schedule.
 
This is that incredible story with color photos thru-out of the men, landscape and others involved. Front end boards show a map of the Area of South Magnetic Pole, the back end boards show the route of Shackleton's Southern journey of 1908, Scott's journey in 1911, and Roberts' journey in 1985 of the Great Barrier Ice Shelf and their route's across the Beardmore Glacier. WINNER OF THE 1998 BOARDMAN TASKER PRIZE. 
 
The UK title is In the Footsteps of Scott.
