Here is the story of the infamous 1910 race to the South Pole, as told by its fearless yet desperate leader, Robert Falcon Scott. The New York Times called Scott's Last Expedition "A splendid record of heroism not soon to be forgotten."

I can't recommend this highly enough! The type of character that Captain Scott and his crew showed during their demise is so admirable that it should be the benchmark toward which anyone should try to emulate in the face of similar circumstances.

This gripping story of courage and achievement is the account of Robert Falcon Scott's last fateful expedition to the Antarctic, as told by surviving expedition member Apsley Cherry-Garrard. Cherry-Garrard, whom Scott lauded as a tough, efficient member of the team, tells of the journey from England to South Africa and southward to the ice floes. From there began the unforgettable polar journey across a forbidding and inhospitable region.

This is an expertly structured and unsentimental account of the hardships faced by the crew of the Terra Nova Expeditition during their journey to the South Pole. After having read the book before listening to this audiobook, I must say that the narrator truly captures the tone of the book perfectly. This is truly one of the best books I've ever read or listened to.

The King James Version of the Holy Bible is the most influential and widely published book ever written. It has been translated into over 2,000 languages and is still the world’s best-selling book every year. After its original publication in 1611, the King James Bible quickly became the standard for English-speaking Protestants. Its flowing language and prose rhythm has had a profound influence on the literature of the past 400 years.
