The best written and most enduring account of exploits in the Antarctic.' - Taurus. 'It was perhaps the only real stroke of luck in Scott's ill-fated [Terra Nova] expedition that Cherry-Garrard, the one survivor of the winter journey, happened to be able to describe it so effectively that the reader forgets how comfortable he is in his arm-chair, and remembers the tale with a shiver as if he had been through it himself.' - George Bernard Shaw.
