The Last Place on Earth, Scott and Amundsen's Race to the South Pole

The Last Place on Earth, Scott and Amundsen's Race to the South Pole

by Roland Huntford

  • EXPLORATION
  • 1999
  • PAPER
  • 576 PAGES
  • FAVORITE

This is the still controversial book published 20 years ago that effectively de-constructs the much mythologized Robert Falcon Scott. Clearly an admirer of Amundsen, Huntford interweaves the story of the two expeditions, contrasting Amundsen's well planned campaign with the many follies of Scott's ill-fated quest.  (ANT100, $15.95)
