In the age of discovery, Antarctica remained an unknown quantity amongst the world’s scientists and explorers. Robert Falcon Scott was amongst the pioneers who penetrated the ice and cruel weather. This is the story of his journey from England, the year-long preparations, which included enduring the harsh winter and euphoric explorations in the spring - culminating in the ill-fated final march to his goal, only to be beaten by the Norwegians and to suffer terrible loss - and death. A touching story of ambition and a celebration of the harshest continent from renowned Australian illustrator, Peter Gouldthorpe.
