Book Description
'For God's sake look after our people' Captain Scott's harrowing account of his expedition to the South Pole in 1910-12 was first published in 1913. In his journals Scott records his party's optimistic departure from New Zealand, the hazardous voyage of theTerra Nova to Antarctica, and the trek with ponies and dogs across the ice to the Pole. On the way the explorers conduct scientific experiments, collect specimens, and get to know each other's characters. Their discovery that Amundsen has beaten them to their goal, and the endurance with which they face an 850-mile march to safety, have become the stuff of legend. This new edition publishes for the first time a complete list of the changes made to Scott's original text before publication. In his Introduction Max Jones illuminates the Journals' writing and publication, Scott's changing reputation, and the continued attraction of heroes in our cynical age.

    Siempre me ha interesado el desastre de la expedición de Scott al Polo Sur, desde que supe de ella. Leerla de primera mano a través de su diario da un ángulo totalmente diferente a la historia. Sin embargo, si has leído antes “El Último Lugar de la Tierra” de Roland Huntford, puede que uno se haga una visión mucho más global del asunto y mire la versión de Scott bajo un espectro totalmente diferente.
