Scott of the Antarctic

Author(s): Elspeth Huxley

Antarctica | Secondhand

Elspeth Huxley draws on those letters and diaries in her luminous biography. It reaches back to Scott's first voyage to the Antarctic, introduces the charming sculptor he married in middle age after a whirlwind of self-doubt, and builds up to the last expedition a marvel of teamwork that will always be remembered for the nobility shown by men facing death. The story of Robert Falcon Scott is all the more interesting because he was a complex, self-questioning man whose conquest of the self was "a feat perhaps more admirable than the conquest of the Pole."
