A Tale For Our Generation
Written by Henry Bowers and Edward Wilson
January 2012 marked the centenary of Robert Falcon Scott’s arrival at the South Pole with his team. After a gruelling 11 month journey, on reaching the South Pole, Scott was to discover the tent and flag of the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, who had achieved the goal just weeks earlier with his men. Tragically Scott’s entire party died on the return journey. The bodies, journals and photographs of some members of the party were discovered eight months later.
A Tale For Our Generation reproduces the heart renching and fascinating journals of two members of Scott’s team. Journals that are currently held in the private collection of businessman Kerry Stokes.
