I had long thought it would be out of print, and was delighted to find this was not so.
It is the trend today to go to great lengths to de-bunk heroes, and Robert Falcon Scott is among the victims.
Ponting keeps him on his pedestal, and no bad thing!
The photographs are excellent, but better in the larger format book. Don't let that put you off, though.
A good read.

The only downside to this edition is that the publishers unaccountably saw fit to provide a platform for another of Roland Huntford's incredibly tiresome and bitter rants about Captain Scott himself, by inviting him to contribute an unworthy, though mercifully short, introduction. Huntford's by now largely discredited iconoclasm despoils some of the dignity and freshness of Ponting's own work. Just ignore it and enjoy Ponting himself.
