    One thought on “The Great White South: Being an Account of Experiences with Captain Scott's South Pole Expedition and of the Nature Life of the Antarctic”

    1. Every time I start another book about an expedition I've already read about before I kind of assume that it will go over all of the same ground and that there won't really be anything new. And every time I'm wrong about that, in this case especially. Ponting noticed and commented on several things in this book that none of the other first-hand accounts I've read have really touched on (or at least not that I noticed when reading them): the sailors singing various chanties as they went about thei [...]

    2. A very interesting take on the Scott expedition told by its official photographer. He comes across as a characters just as much if not more than the rest of the members of the expedition. He certainly has a bombastic "Hurrah! God bless the King and the Empire!" attitude that made me roll my eyes occasionally, but that's the POV you're going to get. Some of the stories he recounts range from the darkly hilarious (he was nearly eaten by a killer whale, and the more bizarre habits of Adelaide pengu [...]

    3. This is such a different perspective on the Antarctic exploration at the beginning of the 20th Century and focuses on the ill-fated mission by Captain Scott. However, it covers so much more than just this journey. The narrative is by the expedition photographer and is filled with information about the weather and the different plants and animals found in the Antarctic, but also the equipment and the method of travel. Very little of the book is actually taken over by Scott mission. Instead it foc [...]

    4. Fabulous, witty and personal account of the expedition photographer HG Ponting. Great images and stories of endurance, commitment and camaraderie. Immerse yourself in a world most of us will never see!

    5. Definitely awakened a desire to read more Antarctic expedition books! And top of the list of Scott's diary!
