Description
Knowledgeable and focused, Roald Amundsen has earned his place in history as the first to reach the South Pole. Robert Scott, on the other hand, has often been dismissed as a dashing incompetent who persevered in the face of inevitable defeat. Pulitzer Prize winner Edward L. Larson offers a new perspective on the Antarctic expeditions of the early 20th century by looking at the British efforts for what they actually were—scientific enterprises in which reaching the South Pole was but a spectacular sideshow. By focusing on the larger purpose, Larson deepens our appreciation of these explorers' larger-than-life achievements.
