Detailed Product Description
London, John Murray, 1936, stated "Cheap Edition" reprint in one volume. 521 pp, b/w illustrations, mapped end papers. Original blue pictorial cloth hardcover, gilt title on spine and dust jacket. Minor foxing to page edges, else Fine.

A solid reprint copy of perhaps the landmark book of Antarctic exploration. Certainly a much more popular and well written book than the one by Roald Amundsen, who beat Scott to the South Pole by one month. Preface by Sir Clements R. Markham.

In November 1910, a ship called Terra Nova left New Zealand on its way south to Antarctica. On board was an international team of explorers led by Robert Falcon Scott, a man determined to be the first to reach the South Pole. A year and a half later, Scott and three members of his team died during a brutal blizzard.
 
Their dream of reaching the Pole first had already been dashed by the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, and now on their return trip--slowed by ill health and bad weather--Scott's party found themselves trapped in a tent without sufficient provisions, while the wind howled endlessly outside. Even in his final hours, Scott found the strength to continue the journal he'd started at the beginning of his adventures; the diary was found beside his frozen body.

Scott's Last Expedition: The Journals is the explorer's detailed account of his time in Antarctica. The team's daily progress towards their final goal is recorded in Scott's vivid, personal narrative, as well as his impressions of the harsh conditions, the stark beauty of the tundra, and his own increasingly desperate ambition to beat his rivals to the Pole.

Shortly before he died, Scott wrote: "Had we lived, I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance, and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman." Robert Falcon Scott and his men died, but their story lives on in his journals.
