Summary

Centenary of Captain Scott's expedition to the South Pole. This is 'the most gripping story of polar exploration ever written.' -Sir Ranulph Fiennes. WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SIR RANULPH FIENNES The Last Expeditionis Captain Scott's gripping account of his expedition to the South Pole in 1910-12. It was meant to be a voyage of scientific discovery and a heroic exploration of the last unconquered wilderness. Scott's expedition, carried in the Terra Nova, pitted him and his team not only against the elements but also against the Norwegian explorer, Amundsen. Ultimately, Scott was beaten by both. The journals are full of incident and drama, courage and endurance, hope and bitter disappointment. These journals were found, along with Scott's body, several months after his death and just 11 miles from base camp and safety.
