Captain Robert Scott's final journey to the South Pole has been called one of history's greatest tales of adventure. And his journals are among the most dramatic and moving documents in the English language. Sensitively read by David Horovitch, this new audio adaptation starts in 1910 as Scott's ship, the Terra Nova, sets sail from New Zealand. Then in vivid, conversational style details the dangerous journey through the ice to Antarctica, the winter hibernation in 24-hour darkness, and the final journey to and from the Pole. A remarkable story of courage, it ends with Scott's last tragic diary entry on the 29th March 1912, when he, Wilson and Bowers, out of food, sheltering from the raging blizzard outside their tent, calmly await their deaths.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 11/28/2013

    " So interesting to read Scott's journals, after reading "The Worst Journey in the World" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johanna C. | 10/24/2013

    " even though I am intimate with the story I was riveted and cheering for Scott, Evans, Bowers, Oates & Wilson every step of the way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Timo | 9/11/2013

    " Een groepje fanatisten in de sneeuw. Dat alles echt gebeurd is, fout gaat en dramatisch eindigt verhoogt het leedvermaak en de drang om het uit te lezen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 9/6/2013

    " Interesting mix of Scott's journal entries and other notes about the expedition. The book really gave a good sense of the difficulties the expedition endured. A tragic story of early Antarctic exploration. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 9/26/2012

    " It's just as it claims, the mostly daily journal of Scott's doomed polar expedition. You share in their fears, joys, and ultimately their decline as the end approaches. Scott wrote with honesty and sincerity and never lost the composure of an officer and gentleman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Clitheroe | 9/19/2012

    " Note to self: if you ever go to the Antarctic and find that the Norwegians have beat you to the South Pole, don't worry about carrying thirty-five pounds of fossils back. Don't worry about it. Worry about not having packed enough food. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Edwards | 4/17/2012

    " Excellent. Gripping until the end, which we all know well.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 4/14/2012

    " I read this on a day by day basis, traveling with Scott on the journey. I was impressed with Scott's writing. Loved the parts that took place near McMurdo station, since I could envision them. Overall, it's an epic journey that is well documented.........highly recommended. "

    " Very well presented book. The well known story is of course enthralling and emotional. The many quality photographs make this especially fascinating. "

    " Scott's diary was published in an edited form after his death in 1912. The unexpurgated version tells us more about the man and the traits that led to the fatal outcome for his team. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Barclay | 3/26/2011
