The Armchair Adventurer Series chronicles true, historical events with the energy and emotion of a personal narrative. From the deadly, frozen landscape of Antarctica to the merciless abyss of the sea. These are epic stories of great adventure, perseverance, and courage, created and told by Lawrence Howard.
Polar Opposites recounts heroic and tragic events in Antarctica one hundred years ago. Scott and his four companions fought their way to the Pole only to find the Norwegian flag flying there: Amundsen had beaten him by five weeks. Crushed by disappointment, utterly exhausted and short on food and fuel, Scott and his companions froze and starved to death on the return journey, just eleven miles from a huge cache of provisions and supplies. This a tale of the agony and the ecstasy, of accomplishment and failure, of a glorious victory overshadowed by an even more glorious defeat
