Scott of the Antarctic

The Journals of Captain Robert E Scott's last polar expedition

This autobiography is pieced together from Scott's diary of his expedition to the South and his later death.

It is very sad as we already know the outcome but reading through the journal entries you cannot but respect and admire the expedition as they encounter their difficulties with dignity even towards the end when they knew were facing certain death. This account is strongly recommended for readers of survivor tales and indeed compares infinitely better than current "survivor style" reality television shows.
