Detailed Product Description
UK, 1989, UK edition. 330 pp, many color photos on glossy paper. Softcover. Fine. 

A well illustrated and interesting account of the first attempt at the south pole on foot since Scott in 1912, following Scott's original route. Swan later went on to the north pole, becoming the first man to reach both poles on foot. This work won the 1987 Boardman Tasker Award. 'Deserves to be widely read' (Richard Adams). The story of three men, inspired by the heroism of Captain R.F. Scott, who walked Scott's 1912 route to the South Pole, in a 883 mile expedition in 1985; unlike Scott, they refused to romanticize the personal aspects of the trek. 
 
WINNER OF THE BOARDMAN TASKER PRIZE.
