Captain Scott (book)


Sir Ranulph Fiennes has been described by the Guinness Book of Records as 'the world's greatest living explorer' so no one is better placed to explode the myths surrounding the life of this remarkable man. Fiennes expertly uses anecdotes from modern expeditions and his own experiences to bring to life Scott's remarkable, but somewhat controversial, story. A fascinating read, Fiennes writes brilliantly and with unsurpassed empathy to defend Scott point by point and to help us appreciate the enormity of his achievement. [1]
