Robert Scott's final journey to the South Pole has been called one of history's greatest tales of adventure, and in his journals this extraordinary mission is recorded in vivid detail; readers are carried with Scott and his companions until the final entry on 29th March 1912. Scott's writing is a harrowing narration of an expedition filled with drama and cruel disappointment. In his conversational entries there is fascinating insight into the character of an icon of courage and adventure.
