About this book

A biography of Captain Scott - the pivotal figure in pre-First World War Antarctic exploration, this illustrated book re-examines the courage and tragedy of Scott's expedition and reasserts his position in the pantheon of British heroes. It also sets out to reconcile the private struggles of the man with the public life of extremes that he led.
