South Pole: The British Antarctic


    During the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913, Robert F. Scott and his five-man team battled the elements—traveling through subzero temperatures with motor sledges and ponies—in the hope of being the first to reach this uninhabited territory. Arriving at the South Pole on January 18, 1913, the adventurers were greeted by their worst nightmare: a Norwegian flag. Disheartened and badly frostbitten, they trudged back toward their boat, only to die just eleven miles from the next depot.

    This epic, well-documented journey is starkly relived through a historic collection of stunning black-and-white photography and excerpts from Scott's harrowing diary.
