Apsley George Benet Cherry-Garrard has always dreamt of becoming an explorer. So in the spring of 1910, when Captain Robert Falcon Scott offers young Cherry the position of Assistant Zoologist aboard the Terra Nova, Cherry considers himself the luckiest man alive.

Cherry's luck, however, will soon change. Far off in the icy unknown of Antarctica, where temperatures plummet below - 77°F, exploration is synonymous with a struggle for life. Frostbite, scurvy, hidden ice chasms, and packs of hungry killer whales are very real dangers. But even these perils don't prepare Cherry for the expedition he and two other crew members embark upon to collect the eggs of Emperor penguins. Along the way, he will face the elements head-on, risking life and limb in the name of science.

Rife with captivating details of survival in an icy wilderness, this reimagining of the famous 1910 expedition to the South Pole, told in Cherry's voice, is an unforgettable tale of courage and camaraderie. Download and start listening now!

    " It was a different age in 1911 when Robert Falcon Scott and his crew set off from Cardif, Wales for the South Pole. Scott and 4 others would not return. Adventure reading with a twist...this book is a fictional account and condensed version one of the team's books published in 1923. "

    " I read this without any real history of what it was about. Kind of a grim ending to it and somewhat off from where it was going. Not a bad and fast read though. "

    " If you are interested in the tales of the North this is an interesting account of the quest to reach the South Pole. "
