Críticas:

'This is a must for any enthusiast of the Heroic Age of exploration - indeed, required and humbling reading for every aspiring adventurer of today.' --Benedict Allen - explorer, fim-maker, author

Scot of the Antarctic - poignant last letter to mother reveals dying moments of 'Birdie' Bowers with last two members of doomed expedition. --The Mail on Sunday, 29th July 2012

Scott of the Antarctic was surrounded by strong characters. One, Henry 'Birdie' Bowers, emerges as grounded, courageous and ferociously well organised. He handled landing, navigation and more for the 1910-12 Terra Nova Expedition, and took part in the penguin-egg quest immortalized in Apsley Cherry-Garrard s memoir The Worst Journey in the World (1922). He was also the youngest to die with Scott in the doomed party of five . Built on research in Antarctica and at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, UK, Anne Strathie s biography includes previously unpublished material. --Nature magazine, 9th August 2012

Reseña del editor:

Henry `Birdie' Bowers realised his life's ambition when he was selected for Captain Scott's Terra Nova expedition to the Antarctic, yet he also met his death on the journey. Born to a sea-faring father and adventurous mother on the Firth of Clyde, Bowers' boyhood obsession with travel and adventure took him round the world several times and his life appears, with hindsight, to have been a ceaseless preparation for his ultimate, Antarctic challenge. Although just 5ft 4in, he was a bundle of energy; knowledgeable, indefatigable and the ultimate team player. In Scott's words, he was `a marvel'. This new biography, drawing on Bowers' letters, journals and previously neglected material, sheds new light on Bowers and tells the full story of the hardy naval officer who could always lift his companions' spirits.
