Having visited Scott and Shackleton Huts in 1957 as a Naval Officer/ journalist it is remarkable that the artifacts and structure are so intact. The book gives one the experience of being there and experiencing the chill and minimal living conditions. I look forward to sharing this outstanding presentation with other polar explorers.

I hope to return there in the near future.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Vespatian on November 21, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Basically a good, interesting book. Tends to let
'art' get in the way of readily conveying the substance.
For instance, was it really necessary to reverse print, i.e
white type on black pages. Arty yes, but at the expense
of good, clear legibility.

Great photography, given the basic paucity of subject matter,
especially in Scotts Hut. There is one glaring omission.
And that was the lack of contemporary photos of Scott and
Shackleton and members of their expeditions. These men are spoken of
on every page. Many of their personal effects are photographically
captured in situ, right where they were left, a hundred years ago.

It would be nice to see the faces of the men whose legacy
this book is.
