An excellent Bio,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Scott of the Antarctic: A Biography (Paperback)
This is a great "counter" to the Roland Huntford's The Last Place on Earth (http://www.amazon.com/dp/0375754741) which is unbalanced in its criticism of Scott. This bio shows Scott as a product of his time. I still don't feel that it dealt with why "no dogs" effectively, other than pulling sleds was honorable. But otherwise the book shows a very rounded view of who Scott was, why he did what he did and what a great leader he was.
