Ten years in the making and in collaboration with the Scott Polar Research Institute, Sarah Airriess has brought to life one of the greatest stories of bravery, discovery and science as we retell the story of Scott's expedition to the Antarctic through the eyes of its youngest member.  


In 1922, Apsley Cherry-Garrard, one of the youngest survivors of Captain Scott’s ill-fated attempt to reach the South Pole, published his memoir of the expedition. The Worst Journey in the World humanised the epic tragedy with its sensitive observations of the men involved and evocative descriptions of Antarctic life.


A century later, this classic of travel literature is being adapted into a series of graphic novels by Disney veteran Sarah Airriess, who has spent over a decade researching the expedition in order to tell the story completely and faithfully. The personalities of the men, and the science they undertook, are equally as important to understanding the story as the famous feats of exploration.
