A Biography

E-Book ( EPUB mit Adobe DRM )
In Ihrem Land nicht verfügbar


Historian David Crane, with full access to the explorers papers, diaries, and expedition records, gives us an illuminating portrait of Robert Falcon Scott that is more nuanced and balanced than any we have had before. In reassessing Scotts life, Crane is able to provide a fresh perspective on not only the Discovery expedition of 19014 and the Terra Nova expedition of 191013, but his remarkable scientific achievements and the challenges of his tumultuous private life. Neither foolhardy dilettante, nor the last romantic champion of his age, Scott is presented as a man of indomitable courage and questionable judgment. The result is an absolutely compelling portrait of a complicated hero.From the Trade Paperback edition.
