Herbert Ponting served as official photographer and artist on Robert Scott’s British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). It was on this expedition that Scott and four companions reached the South Pole, only to find that Norwegian Roald Amundsen had beaten them to it. “The book contains the only account of life in the Cape Evans environs while the Depot, Western, and Eastern Northern) Parties were away, and it includes one of the two most complete descriptions of hut life during the first winter, the other being Taylor’s ‘With Scott’.” – Rosove. Ponting’s numerous photos are an exquisite addition to this narrative of the expedition.
