Review of Return to Antarctica: the amazing adventure of Sir Charles Wright on Robert Scott’s journey to the South Pole, by Adrian Raeside
This book is mainly the result of a visit made to Antarctica in general and the historic huts on Ross Island in particular. The author is the grandson of Sir Charles Wright, who was a physicist and glaciologist during Captain Scott’s last expedition aboard Terra Nova (1910-13). Indeed much is derived from his grandfather’s diary published in 1993. Wright was a member of the party which found Scott’s last camp after the 1912 winter.
