Praise

“A compelling narrative drive. . . . It’s all here: Scott and his party lost on the featureless Antarctic plateau; Scott falling into a crater; frostbite, snow blindness, the unimaginable cold.”
National Geographic

“Masterly. . . engrossing. . . . The most balanced biography [of Scott] yet. . . . Crane’s stylish prose is a sheer pleasure.”
The New York Times Book Review

“A volume of its own epic proportions, using a historian’s depth and research perspective, leaving few stones unturned in pursuit of painting a thorough picture of the times and the intrigue and pressures of mounting such ventures.” —The Providence Journal

“Exhaustive. . . . [Crane] finds in Scott not a hapless adventurer but a hero for our times.”—Men’s Vogue
