A true life adventure,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Voyage of the Discovery (Wordsworth Classics of World Literature) (Paperback)
The book is a tale of adventure, heroism and reliance on a person’s own resilience and the support of others.
In a day and age when we are looking to have films and books that will excite and stimulate our imagination, this is a book about a true life experience, that can grip even those who have previously not had any interested in polar exploration.
Captain Scott’s description of the day to day challenges and survival for 3 years when Discovery was frozen into the ice is well written and easy reading.
Whatever your view of Scott is, this book is interesting reading.
