Text clear and unmarked. This book recounts Richard Scott's expedition to the South Pole in 1912. Scott and many of his crew members would die in a storm on the return back to their ship. These books are his diaries from the journey and this set constitutes the first publication of these documents. Scott's death is, in part, a tragedy because he was to learn upon his arrival at the South Pole that Norwegian explorer Roald Amundson and his crew had beaten him to the pole by about a month.
