No Return Captain Scott's Race to the Pole

No Return Captain Scott's Race to the Pole

In the age of discovery, Antarctica remained an unknown quantity amongst the world s scientists and explorers. Robert Falcon Scott was amongst the pioneers who penetrated the ice and cruel weather. This is the story of his journey from England, the year-long preparations, which included enduring the harsh winter and euphoric explorations in the spring - culminating in the ill-fated final march to his goal, only to be beaten by the Norwegians and to suffer terrible loss - and death. This book is a celebration of a continent and ambition that will linger long in readers minds.

Peter Gouldthorpe was born in Melbourne in 1954 and now lives in Tasmania. He is recognised as one of Australia s most versatile and skilful illustrators, who also paints landscapes, portraits and commissioned work, and designs stage sets.
