A refreshing and facinating read, 9 Jan 2013
This take on a traditional story is brilliant and revealing - Williams brings a fresh perspective by challenging the norm. In this version we understand more about Edgar Evans and his qualities as an unsung hero, leaving us looking at his role in the expedition in a completely different way. Williams suggests there were many other factors that played a part in the deaths of his team mates and highlights the failure of other reporters (of that time and now) to explore the full version of the truth. Incredibly interesting and well worth the read!
