The late 1890s saw the start of a "heroic age" in polar exploration. This book tells the story of three men who were to embody the spirit of the time--driven by courage, determination and ambition, to be the first to discover the South Pole: Robert Falcon Scott, Roald Amundsen and Ernest Shackleton.

South: The Race to the Pole describes the extraordinary challenges faced and hardships endured in their attempts.

Illustrated throughout, the book contains a map depicting the routes of the various expeditions, crew lists, a selected bibliography and suggested reading, and recommended websites. This new edition will be thoroughly revised throughout and contain a new introduction to reflect new research and discoveries regarding these expeditions as well as more recent attempts in traveling to the Pole, in addition to containing new images from the Royal Museums Greenwich Collection.

NOTE: This title is a Bargain book. Bargain books are excess inventory or store returns from publishers that are discreetly marked with a small dot or line on the edge of the pages and, while most are in great condition, some books may exhibit minor cosmetic wear and tear. They may also have a price sticker on it from the original store it was returned from. In rare cases the actual cover of the book might not match the one in the display picture.

Due to many publishers not providing a Canadian list price the Canadian list price shown is an estimation based upon the US list price multiplied by the current exchange rate.
