Scott of the Antarctic: A Biography (Google eBook)
Historian David Crane, with full access to the explorerís papers, diaries, and expedition records, gives us an illuminating portrait of Robert Falcon Scott that is more nuanced and balanced than any we have had before.
In reassessing Scottís life, Crane is able to provide a fresh perspective on not only the Discovery expedition of 1901ó4 and the Terra Nova expedition of 1910ó13, but his remarkable scientific achievements and the challenges of his tumultuous private life. Neither foolhardy dilettante, nor the last romantic champion of his age, Scott is presented as a man of indomitable courage and questionable judgment. The result is an absolutely compelling portrait of a complicated hero.
