The Great White South

being an account of experiences with Captain Scott's South pole expedition and of the nature life of the Antarctic


Photographer Ponting joined Robert Scott's expedition to the South Pole in 1910. His remarkable book not only tells of the life among Scott's crew on board and at camp, but also provides numerous photos depicting the Antarctic landscape. Ponting also recorded, both in print and on film, habits of the native penguins and seals, and shares stories of his arrival at volcanic Mount Erebus, nearly losing a team of dogs in a crevasse, and escaping a harrowing run-in with a pack of killer-whales. Ponting also tells of the struggle to survive in the extreme conditions at the pole, and how Scott died with two of his crewmen shortly after achieving their goal.
