Having personally visited Antarctica in JanuaryI am able to appreciate the incredible bravery displayed and the massive hardships endured by Captain Scott and his comrades which has all been so vividly depicted in "Scott of the Antarctic".Cited by: This is widely regarded as being the best Antarctic book ever written, and by some - the best travel book ever written.

Never out of print since first published in 'Cherry' was the 2nd youngest and one of the bravest on Captain Scott's famously fatal expedition of to be the first to reach the South Pole. The haunting sledging journals of Tryggve Gran, in which the young Norwegian explorer details his discovery of the frozen body of Captain Scott in the Antarctic, have sold for £,   Having revisited the whole Scott of the Antarctic story by reading a biography of Amundsen, followed by rereading Ranulph Fiennes' book and then acquiring the life of Kathleen Scott by her granddaughter, I decided to track down another, hopefully impartial, biography of Scott.

Excellent and informative though Fiennes' work is, it is avowedly /5(14). What Lawrence did for the desert sands, Cherry-Garrard did for the Antarctic snows. The book's title refers not to Scott's push on the pole, but to a trek made some months earlier as part of the.

Scott of the Antarctic When the expedition account was finally released as a book inScott spoke of how Shackleton’s illness was the key factor in their failing of the attempt of the Pole.

The Complete Guide To Antarctic Wildlife: This beautifully illustrated book is a complete guide to the wildlife and natural history of the Antarctic Region. It covers the Antarctic continent, the Southern Ocean and the Subantarctic Islands.

CHECK IT OUTAuthor: Amanda Zeisset. This book is about Scott not (as the title says) about Scott of the antarctic, so if you only want to know about the expedition, this book isnt the right one for you, I guess. BUT if you are interested in the man himself I highly recommend this one to you/5.
