Abstract:

"This gripping story of courage and achievement is the account of Scott's last fateful expedition to the Antarctic. Apsley Cherry-Garrard -- who Scott lauded as a tough, efficient member of the team -- tells of the journey from England to South Africa and southward to the ice-flows. From there began the unforgettable polar journey across a forbidding and inhospitable region. It was here -- in arctic temperatures -- on November 12, 1912, that the author, in a search party, found the bodies of Scott and his companions along with poignant last notebook entries, some of them recorded in this work"--Back cover.
