2010 marks the centenary of the last great race of terrestrial discovery – the South Pole. For the first time, Capt. Scott's unedited diaries run alongside those of both Roald Amundsen and Olav Bjaaland, never before translated into English. Cutting through the welter of controversy to the events at the heart of the story, Huntford weaves the narrative from the protagonists' accounts of their own fate. What emerges is a whole new understanding of what really happened on the ice and the definitive account of the Race for the South Pole.
