About this book

New biography of Scott.

From the publisher's announcement:

Crane's biography of Scott rescues a maligned figure and restores him to his proper place in history. By reassessing Scott's life and his huge scientific achievements, Crane is able to provide a fresh and exciting perspective on the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The heroism and tragedy of Scott's last journey are only one part of the process, for the scientific enquiry that led up to it transformed the whole nature and ambition of Antarctic exploration.
