I loved this book. I really enjoyed this book more than I expects to, but I was excited to learn about the geography of the antarctic area as described by Cherry. Although I believe Scott made many mistakes in planning and executing this trip, the two most egregious to me are: On the excursion to seek eggs, men experienced unnecessary danger, exhaustion, mental strain and injuries. Had the team stayed intact, even when the pledges failed, the men could have taken turns with the manual labor, or banded together to make shorter work of it - exposing the entire team to less of the elements.
Regarding the purchase and use of sledges; I am sure the idea of "vehicles" capable of hauling large amounts of supplies, equipment, etc.

I believe the two mistakes I consider Scott made, cost him the lives of good men, himself not withstanding. All in all, a very good read, with insight as to the decision making of a leader under very difficult circumstances, and the camaraderie that exists between teammates also under these circumstances.phynuzewiti.ml/map44.php
Emperors of the Ice by Richard Farr
This book is not fictional. As the writer says t poo read Scott's dairy w would take forever,so. Also Gerard Cherry' s. Not to say they aren't worthy of reading but maybe one of these days I just might. Great info on this expedition I would have never known about. Thanks again Richard Farr.
Very interesting read,to follow the journey of all those men to Antarctica and the grueling conditions that they tried to do travel in was amazing to me! What was the lure of that place is beyond me and the severity of it all,humm and just the mentioned of Antarctic seems to make some men drool of anticipation!!!

Parts of Antarctica are warming, giving birth to huge icebergs, and the consequences could be catastrophic in a place where all life is touched by the ice.
Using Crittercam, scientists hitch a virtual ride under the ice with the emperor penguin to study the impact of climate change on the penguin's world. In a land where temperatures dip to degrees below zero, and winds reach mph, and in winter, the sun drops below the horizon for a month, the emperor penguins huddle together to keep warm.
They either walk upright or scoot along on their bellies, swim under the ice to search for fish, and they distinguish their mates and young by voice recognition.
