A First-Rate Tragedy: Robert Falcon Scott and the Race to the South Pole

Preston, Diana

Boston, MA: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1998. First U.S. Edition. very good, very good. 269, illus., maps, sources and references, bibliography, index. Why did Scott's meticulously laid plans end in disaster while his rival Norwegian Amundsen returned home safely after reaching the pole? On November 12, 1912, a rescue team trekking across Antarctica's Great Ice Barrier found the snow-covered tent of the British explorer Robert Falcon Scott. Inside, they made a grim discovery: Scott's frozen body lay between the bodies of two fellow explorers. They had died just 11 miles from the depot of supplies which might have saved them. The remaining two members of the party were nowhere in sight, but Scott's eloquent diary soonrevealed their fate.

From the book, ""Ms. Preston flings the hot tapestry of character against the White Continent's gelid austerity in this recapitulation of Robert Falcon Scott's exasperatingly 'British' whopper of a screw up. She is fun and pithy about ice and the Edwardians--both wise and intutive--and makes resourceful research look easy."" Hard cover in fine condition. Text block clean and tight. No markings noted. Stated First U.S. Edition. Book contains black and white photographs. Dust jacket in very good condition, has been price clipped.
