Apsley Cherry-Garrard - The worst journey in the world


De achterflap:

A gripping story of courage and achievement. Only the writings of T.E. Lawrence, Sir Richard Burton, and Ernest Shackleton rank with this harrowing memoir. Cherry-Garrard, who accompanied Robert Falcon Scott to the Antarctic on the explorer's doomed quest for the South Pole, recounts the unforgettable journey across forbidding, inhospitable terrain. He was also a member of the search party that ultimately discovered Scott's frozen body along with his last notebook entries.

With an introduction by the author, this tale of adventure stands out as a literary accomplishment as well as a classic of exploration.
