The Antarctic Exploration Anthology The frozen continent of Antarctica has always captured the imagination of explorers and adventurers from around the World, most especially in the first few decades of the 20th Century, when the race was on to be the very first person to reach the South Pole.

In this carefully selected Anthology we present the personal accounts of the greatest early explorers of Antarctica: The works contained are: "South! The Story of Shackleton’s Last Expedition" by Sir Ernest Shackleton, "Scott's Last Expedition: The Journals of Captain R. F. Scott" by Captain Robert Falcon Scott, "The South Pole, an Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the 'Fram'" by Roald Amundsen, "The Worst Journey in the World" by Apsley Cherry-Garrard, and "The Home of the Blizzard: Being the Story of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition" by Sir Douglas Mawson.

Each of these intrepid explorers gives their own incredible, stoic, and sometimes harrowing accounts of the almost impossible odds they faced to achieve their goals.
Through success and failure, personal sacrifice, loyalty, rescue and even death, these great explorers advanced the sum of human scientific knowledge and achievement, and richly deserve their place in history.
The texts in this Anthology are unexpurgated, and include appendices, but have all been formatted and optimized for iBooks, and include selected photos and maps.
