In reassessing Scott's life, Crane is able to provide a fresh perspective on not only the" Discovery" expedition of 1901--4 and the "Terra Nova" expedition of 1910--13, but his remarkable scientific achievements and the challenges of his tumultuous private life. Neither foolhardy dilettante, nor the last romantic champion of his age, Scott is presented as a man of indomitable courage and questionable judgment. The result is an absolutely compelling portrait of a complicated hero.
