David E. Yelverton first recounts the half-century of campaigning that led to a pan-European assault on the unknown continent at the dawn of the twentieth century. Then the book takes the reader along on the Discovery Expedition and into the terrain that faced Scott and his companions as they led parties into unknown -- and often dauntingly mountainous -- territory to bring back the data and specimens that launched a century of research. Moreover, Yelverton analyzes the inexorable factors that governed Scott's conduct of the expedition and contrasts the poignant erosion of his hopes with the achievement of goals -- proof that the Antarctic Continent existed and the location of the South Magnetic Pole -- to which the expedition's patrons attached their greatest hopes.
The book concludes with an account of the build-up of the race for the Pole that was the almost inevitable aftermath of Scott's achievement. Illustrated with more than 40 remarkable black and white photographs, Antarctica Unveiled is a must for the armchair traveler, historian, and Antarctic enthusiast.
