South With Scott

This is probably the most common book on Scott's expeditions. Evans was Scott's second-in-command and all was not well between them. Both Scott's diaries and Evan's own account do not develop this. Evans returned to England before the bodies of the polar party was discovered. His version of events may initially seem to be first hand accounts but this is not the case. His prolific output satisfied a public demand for more information about the Antarctic at the time. The man who went on to become a war hero and rise through the ranks of the Navy was a publishers dream. His books now are rather dry reading and lack the juicier details of the personalities involved.
