Still Life: Inside the Antarctic Huts of Scott and Shackleton

Watson, Nigel (Jane Ussher, illus.)
Murdoch Books, Millers Point NSW, Australia, 2010. Quarto; Hardcover; 224pp, colour photographs throughout including several large 4 page foldouts. Minor wear; near fine.

The expeditions to the Antarctic Continent forced those taking these voyages to endure hardships almost inconceivable these days; the gruelling narratives of these journeys seem at times to swamp the scientific achievements that they recorded.

Of those who travelled into this harsh environment, Scott and Shackleton are the two best remembered, perhaps for the fact they they both died while undertaking these tests of endurance.

The legacy of their expeditions remains behind them in the huts that they built as safe havens against the endless cold, and these buildings remain, preserved as time capsules by the Antarctic Heritage Trust.

In this lavish book, the reader is taken directly to those distant locales by means of Jane Ussher's remarkable photographs, there to wonder at the almost century-old relics of the adventurers and their strange existence on the edge of the unknown. Lovely copy
