    " This was an excellent read. It was great to get Sir Ranulphs point of view on such a famous story. I am in awe of how much they endured with such simple equipment. I really recommend this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan Porter | 2/9/2013

    " THE biography of Scott; detailed, insightful and gruelling. Compared it to Roland Huntford's version and you can see the difference between someone who has actually walked in his subject's footprints and someone who... well, hasn't. "

    " Iron grit determination and stiff upper lippery are the chief characteristics of the men in this book. They don't make em like that anymore. "

    " Perhaps one of the best books about polar exploration I've read (and there have been plenty) RF is able to give a unique viewpoint on some of the decisions Scott and his party made. "

About the Author

Sir Ranulph Fiennes has traveled to the most dangerous and inaccessible places on earth. In the process he lost nearly half his fingers to frostbite, nearly died on several occasions, and raised millions for charity. He discovered the lost city of Ubar in Oman, was the first man to reach both poles by surface travel, and was also the first to cross the Antarctic continent unsupported. In 1993 Queen Elizabeth II awarded him the Order of the British Empire for “human endeavor and charitable services.” An elite soldier, athlete, mountaineer, and renowned explorer, Fiennes is also the author of more than a dozen books of both fiction and nonfiction.
