About the Book

A Gripping story of courage and achievement.
Only the writings of T.E. Lawrence, Sir Richard Burton and Ernest Shackleton compare with this harrowing memoir. Cherry-Garrard, who accompanied Robert Falcon Scott to the Antarctic on the explorer's doomed quest of the South Pole, recounts the unforgettable journey across forbidding, inhospitable terrain. He was also a member of the search party that ultimately discovered Scott's frozen body along with his last notebook entries.

With an introduction by the author, this tale of adventure stands out as a literary accomplishment as well as a classic of exploration.
