In January 1912, Britain’s Captain Robert F. Scott reached the South Pole, only to find he had been beaten by Roald Amundsen’s Norwegian expedition. Scott and his companions faced an 850-mile march to safety. All perished on the return. A few months later, a search party found Scott’s body and the journals that told his tragic story.
Scott’s own account was published to extraordinary acclaim in 1913. The story of Captain Scott and his team is sure to captivate modern readers just as much as it did almost one-hundred years ago.
