It was meant to be a voyage of scientific discovery and a heroic exploration of the last unconquered wilderness. Scotts expedition, carried in the Terra Nova, pitted him and his team not only against the elements but also against the Norwegian explorer, Amundsen. Ultimately, Scott was beaten by both. The journals are full of incident and drama, courage and endurance, hope and bitter disappointment.These journals were found, along with Scotts body, several months after his death and just 11 miles from base camp and safety.
