The Voyages of Captain Scott” by Charles Turley, is a masterful retelling of the daring Antarctic adventures of Captain Robert Falcon Scott. Drawing from Scott’s own accounts, Turley chronicles both the Discovery Expedition of 1901-1904 and the ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913. The latter journey saw Scott and his team reach the South Pole, only to find that Roald Amundsen’s Norwegian group had arrived 34 days prior. Tragically, Scott and his companions perished on the return.

 

This first edition is enriched with an introduction by the esteemed Sir J.M. Barrie and features a photogravure frontispiece, 4 colored plates, 28 half-tone illustrations, and a folding map, immersing readers in the spirit of early 20th-century exploration.
