'The Worst Journey in the World is to travel what War and Peace is to the novel... a masterpiece'
New York Review of Books
The best polar book there is
Probably the best adventure yarn ever published
Remains the masterpiece of heroic travel
The finest book ever written about Antarctic exploration as well as a great literary classic
Over the greater part of a lifetime I have worn out two copies of the Antarctic's classic, Apsley Cherry-Garrard's The Worst Journey in the World
