Blackwell North Amer 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 tragedy endured by the much maligned Scott: he is determined to put the record straight. As well as being 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 has been attacked and his achievements distorted.
