Captain Scott led the National Antarctic Expedition in 1910 with intentions to reach the South Pole before any man on earth. De-La-Noy chronicles Scott's life from childhood to his final journey into the vastness of the Antarctic, an excursion that marked him a hero. Martyn Read portrays Scott as a man of moral strength and noble courage. A seasoned British performer, he does justice to this patriotic British Navy captain who was devoted to England, a loyalty that cost him his life. His spellbinding performance of Scott's final days in that frozen wasteland describes a commander leading his men through unbearable obstacles to certain death. Read's presentation is a riveting account of one of England's gallant heroes. B.J.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
