Most leaders of ‘heroic age’ polar expeditions wrote official narratives of their exploits. William Speirs Bruce, who led the Scottish National Antarctic Expedition of 1902-4, was an exception. He maintained that since this was a scientific expedition there would be little of interest to the general public. Thus it was left to three of the scientific staff to write this primary account which includes not only the important events but a look at day-to-day life and describes many of the most interesting scientific findings. Facsimile reprint of the 1906 edition.
