It seemed to me this book had more excerpts from diaries and other sources that some of the other books i've read. Diana Preston.

On November 12, , a rescue team trekking across Antarctica's Great Ice Barrier finally found what they sought -- the snow-covered tent of the British explorer Robert Falcon Scott. Inside, they made a grim discovery: Scott's frozen body lay between those of two fellow explorers. They had died just eleven miles from the depot of supplies that might have saved them.

The remaining two members of the party were nowhere in sight, but Scott's eloquent diary revealed their nightmarishly similar fate.

A FIRST RATE TRAGEDY by Diana Preston | Kirkus Reviews

It is a story that continues to haunt the popular imagination, and which has never been told more grippingly or with greater compassion than in this book. This unique combination of biases and motivations makes it hard for modern biographers to fairly portray the likes of Scott and his Norwegian nemesis, Amundson, but Preston succeeds marvelously.
