Fiennes - Captain Scott
The real story of one of the greatest explorers who ever
lived by the man described by the Guinness Book of Records
as 'the world's greatest living explorer".
Sir Ranulph Fiennes is uniquely qualified to write a new
biography of Captain Scott. For the first time Scott's story
is told by someone who has experienced the deprivations,
the stress and the sheer physical pain that Scott lived
through. Fiennes has suffered all but the final tradgedy
endured by the much maligned Scott: He is determined to
put the record straight.
As well as the definitive biography of Scott, written with
the full and exclusive co-operation of the Scott Estate,
this book traces the way that Scott's reputation had been
attacked and his achievements distorted.
Written with the energy and style that have made Ranulph
Fiennes' other books so popular, Captain Scott is the enthralling
story of an extraordinary man.
