About this book

The late 1890s saw the start of a "heroic age" in polar exploration. This book tells the story of three men who were to embody the spirit of the time – driven by courage, determination and ambition, to be the first to discover the South Pole: Robert Falcon Scott, Roald Amundsen and Ernest Shackleton.

South: The Race to the Pole describes the extraordinary challenges faced and hardships endured in their attempts.

Illustrated throughout, the book contains a map depicting the routes of the various expeditions, crew lists, a selected bibliography and suggested reading, and recommended websites. This new edition will be thoroughly revised throughout and contain a new introduction to reflect new research and discoveries regarding these expeditions as well as more recent attempts in traveling to the Pole, in addition to containing new images from the Royal Museums Greenwich Collection.
