A well written recounting of Scott's ill-fated expedition to the South Pole from the perspective of one of the surviving members' grandson. Raeside uses his grandfather and great uncle's dairies and details to bring new life to the often told account of the 1910 expedition. He intersects details of their journey to Antarctica with brief summaries and descriptions of the important people involved as well as reminisces from the author's own trip to the Antarctic continent in 2008. I have read the "definitive" full book by Cherry and this one is a much more palatable (to 21st century tastes) retelling of the tale.

Well written account about Scott's final expedition. The format made it a great read with inserts of facts, biographies, and many pictures. I never realized there was a Canadian on the expedition until I read this book.
