Description
Since Robert Falcon Scott's death in 1912, he has been the subject of innumerable books, some declaring him a hero, others dismissing him as an irresponsible fool. In either case, the man behind the legend has often been distorted beyond recognition. Here, however, having full access to all family papers and to the diaries and records of key participants in the Antarctic expeditions, David Crane offers a portrait of the explorer that is nuanced and balanced. His fresh perspectives on the Discovery expedition of 1901 and the Terra Nova expedition of 1910—with excerpts from Scott's own letters and diaries—place them in the context of a full life of remarkable achievement.

"Many have trodden this path before but this is the masterpiece."—Giles Foden

"This work of exceptional scholarship, compassion and wit must surely count as the most even-handed of the mammoth works undertaken on Scott. Crane himself is certain to be remembered as one of the few writers who, in the telling of Scott's life, was not blinded by love or scorn for the legend they helped to create."—Times Literary Supplement (London)
