Exploration and Death in the AntarcticeBook - 2018
It is no secret that the Antarctic is one of the most dangerous, forbidding places for explorers to step foot inches The terrain is treacherous, the wildlife predatory and the climate fatal if not adequately prepared for. For the first time, Icy Graves uses a selection of the tragic losses of such famous explorers as Arthur Farrant, Belgrave Ninnis and Robert Falcon Scott to plot the forward progress of Antarctic exploration and sensitively tells, often in their own words, the stories of the men and women who have fallen in what Sir Ernest Shackleton called the White Warfare of the South.".
