About this book

In 1912, Captain Scott reached the South Pole, to find he had been beaten by Roald Amundsen's Norwegian expedition. Scott and his companions perished on the return. Later, a search party found Scott's body and the journals, which told his tragic story. This edition draws on the reflection on the Antarctic disaster to illuminate Scott's journals.

Media reviews

Max Jones and the publishers are to be congratulated on this new version of a classic story, and for offering it at such a reasonable price. It should be the last word for a very long time. Peter Speak, Polar Record, Vol 42/2, 2006 'scrupulously scholarly edition... There is nobody who knows more about the Scott mythology than Jones does. With a bit of luck this book will give [Scott] back to the public he deserves.' David Crane, The Spectator 'a damn good read' Literary review 'The whole script can be found in the latest edition of Scott's diary published by OUP, 'Journals: Captain Scott's Last Expedition'. Ably introduced and edited by Max Jones, this is the full, unexpurgated thing.' Fergus Fleming, Literary Review 'thanks to the journals - reprinted now by Oxford University Press, with a new introduction and extensive notes - that we have such a clear picture of Scott's last expedition.' Beryl Bainbridge, The Times 'The most gripping story of polar exploration ever written. It is an adventure full of incident and drama, courage and endurance, hope and bitter disappointment with a tragic end. Max Jones's new edition provides fascinating insights into Scott's character and a wealth of extra material.' Sir Ranulph Fiennes 'This is an inexpensive, well-produced and thoroughly annotated edition of an explorers' bible; the journal of a man who finds it "good to know that there remain wild corners of this dreadfully civilised world".' Mick Herron, Geographical 'allows the modern reader an insight into the mindset of this now iconic figure' David Musgrove, BBC History
