R. F. Scott's attempt to reach the South Pole ahead of Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen is one of the great adventures of modern times. This book presents the complete journals of that Expedition from the preparations for the trip in New Zealand to Scott's final message before he died, written just eleven miles from base camp - safety! The work also features more than two dozen photographs, taken by the expedition, that depict the pristine Antarctic landscape, members of the party, the dog team, Scott's last birthday celebration, and many other aspects of this incredible journey.
