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
  • 2009
  • AUDIO CD
  • 576 PAGES

British actor Tim Pigott-Smith reads Huntford's dramatic tale of hardship, technical challenge, political ambition and fortitude. Running time for this abridged version is 7 hours, 30 minutes. 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.  (ANT303, $34.95)
