Captain Scott Summary

Captain Scott by Ranulph Fiennes

Sir Ranulph Fiennes is uniquely qualified to write a new biography of Captain Scott. This will be the first biography of Scott by someone who has experienced the deprivations, the stress and the sheer physical pain that Scott lived through; he has suffered all but the final tragedy endured by the much maligned Scott. He is determined to put the record straight.

As well as being the definitive biography of Scott, written with the full and exclusive cooperation of the Scott Estate, this book traces the way that Scott's reputation has been attacked and his achievements distorted.

Written with the energy and style that have made his other books so popular, SCOTT is one of the major publishing events of 2003.

About Ranulph Fiennes

A former member of the SAS, Sir Ranulph Fiennes was the first man to reach both poles on land.

In the 1960s he was, according to a BBC article, "kicked out of the SAS for deliberately blowing up a Twentieth Century Fox film-set in Castle Coombe, Wiltshire." The Guinness Book of World Records describes Fiennes as the world's greatest living explorer. He is the only person yet to have been awarded two clasps to the polar medal for both Antarctic and Arctic regions. Fiennes has led over 30 expeditions including the first polar circumnavigation of the Earth and the first unsupported crossing of the Antarctic continent. In 1993 Queen Elizabeth awarded Fiennes with the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for "human endeavour and charitable services," because, on the way to breaking records, he has raised over 5 million for charity.
