About this book

This is the story of the ship especially built for Antarctic exploration, in particular for Captain Robert Falcon Scott's first expedition, by one who went with him. Bernacchi, a physicist, was the only member of that first expedition to have experience of Antarctic conditions, having been one of the first party ever to overwinter in Antarctica.
