    Inhalt:
    Excerpt from The Great White South: Being an Account of Experiences With Captain Scott's South Pole Expedition and of the Nature Life of the Antarctic This book is written by one who had the honour to take part in that great adventure, The British Antarctic Expedition, 1910-13. Its object is to present, in simple language and pictures, some fresh aspects of the setting of that epic Polar drama which must ever stand out in the annals of exploration for the beauty of character revealed in those who took the leading parts, and perished in the final scene. Whilst in the Great White South, during the winter of 1911, Captain Scott expressed to the author the sentiment that it was much to be desired that the youth of the Nation should become conversant with such adventures as Polar expeditions, as this would help to stimulate a fine and manly spirit in the rising generation. The great explorers words inspired the writing of this book. If, therefore, this volume should help to foster in some of our boys that love of adventure which has animated all our great Empire Builders; and in the hearts of some of our girls that approval of chivalrous qualities and gallant deeds which has been the inspiration of the sterner sex throughout the ages, the writer will feel that his reward, for the years spent in securing and preparing the material for this book, will have been richer than he would have dared to hope for when he sailed into the South. The author records, herewith, his gratitude to Lady Scott for graciously contributing the Introduction to this volume; his thanks to Messrs. John Murray of London, and Messrs. Dodd, Mead and Company of New York, for their kind permission to make many quotations herein from Scotts Last Expedition; and his warm sense of obligation to his comrades of the adventure for the assistance they rendered him in the South whenever opportunity permitted.
