The Rescue Of Captain Scott.



The story starts with the building of the 'Discovery' in Dundee and discusses the design features required to survive ice bound waters. Also the lessons learnt by hard practical experience and past polar rescues. These lessons and experiences were met face on by hard bitten, practical men involved in the whaling industry. One of those was Captain Harry McKay, and the book recounts this mans sailing exploits. When Scott's Discovery Expedition fails to return, a relief expedition is required. The obvious choice for leader is Captain Harry McKay. The ship used for the rescue was the 'Terra Nova', which as we know was to feature again in the last Scott expedition.
