Description
Produced in association with the Royal Geographical Society, this visual history is a popular introduction to the heroic era of polar exploration, ranging from the initial navigation of the Northwest Passage to the first flights over the Antarctic. Archival photos are spread across every page, and the book contains more than a dozen removable facsimile documents, including a plan of Fridtjof Nansen's ship Fram and pages from Robert Falcon Scott's diary describing Captain Oates heading to his death. Here are thrilling accounts of Ernest Shackleton's renowned open-boat journey, Douglas Mawson's solo trek across the Polar Plateau, and Lincoln Ellsworth's transatlantic flight, as well as harrowing stories of cannibalism, madness, sabotage, and mutiny.
