“Had we lived,” wrote Captain Scott, in his last message to the public, “I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance, and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman.”
In The Story of Captain Scott, Mary MacGregor paints a vivid picture of the hardships, endurance, and ultimate demise of the great twentieth century explorer Captain Robert Scott and his steadfast crew. Stranded alone in one of the remotest parts of the world—hungry, cold, and deflated by the failure in their mission to be the first to reach the south pole, Captain Scott and his faithful companions fought a heroic battle against the forces of nature in this incredible tale of fortitude, determination, and faith.
For as Ms Macgregor describes it, “although Scott did not live to tell the tale of the heroism of those who followed him so loyally, he wrote in his journal enough to fill the heart not only of every Englishman, but of everyone who reads. And the journal which records the bravery and the endurance of his companions, tells us unawares of the strength, the unwavering courage of their leader. It is the story of Scott’s expedition to the South Pole . . . It is a sad story of a brave adventure.”
The Story of Captain Scott is rare, hard to find, and out of print until now. Given a new lease of life by Charlotte Mason Beehive it is complete and unabridged and contains all the original illustrations.
