Summary
At the beginning of the 20th century, the South Pole was the most coveted prize in the modern age of exploration. In this brilliant dual biography, every detail of the great race to the South Pole during 1911<U+00bf>1912, between Britain's Robert Scott and Norway's Roald Amundsen, is examined and reassessed. Roland Huntford gives a fascinating account of the realities which faced both men. He describes the driving ambitions of the era and the complex, often deeply flawed individuals who were charged with carrying them out. This reissue is updated to include an exclusive interview with the author
