9780689706561: Scott and Amundsen: The Race to the South Pole

"Scott and Amundsen" is a controversial double biography of the first and second to reach the South pole. This book has been described as the 'case against Scott' and it does not hold back on criticism of him. Plus looks at evidence that Scott's failure was not just because of his personality but examines problems that existed out of his control. The unusual cold weather was just one issue. Huntford also elevates Amundsen to his place amongst the greatest of explorers and finding in Scott 'a suitable hero for a nation in decline'. "Scott and Amundsen" follows success of "Endurance" and "Shackelton's Way" - also published by CSA WORD audiobooks to acclaim, and read by Tim Pigott-Smith.
