Detailed Product Description

Connecticut, 1994. 607 pp, 4 maps. New paperback.

The finest written book on the Antarctic. Scott's last expedition to the South Pole. When Robert Falcon Scott appealed for men to join his 1911 expedition to the South Pole, Apsley Cherry-Garrard was one of thousands who volunteered - and the youngest among the handful who were selected. Scott and one party fought their way to the Pole, only to die on the return trip. Cherry-Garrard and two companions set off on the 'worst journey in the world' - a search for the never-before-seen breeding grounds of the Emperor Penguin.

Cherry-Garrard was also a member of the search party that discovered Scott's body and journal of the Pole Party's last days. Drawing from the journals of expedition members and his own experiences, Cherry-Garrard crafted this richly detailed account of an extraordinary expedition. His dramatic, poignant, deeply personal memoir of this Antarctic epic of triumph and tragedy has been renowned as a classic for almost a century.
