The Graphic Novel. Captain Scott's infamous expedition to the Antarctic and the South Pole, retold in stunning images by Disney animator, Sarah Airriess. Produced in collaboration with the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge, The Worst Journey in the World's original tale was written by one of the youngest members of Scott's infamous expedition to the South Pole. Apsley Cherry-Garrard has all the idealism and excitement of a young man on the adventure of a lifetime. As things start to go wrong, he finds himself drawn to the centre of events, and burdened with responsibility far beyond his years. A painful loss of innocence is the axis on which the story turns, but it's ultimately about the power of friendship, the value of curiosity, and the extremes to which people go for the sake of an idea. To celebrate the Scott Institute's centennial, Sarah Airriess transform's Cherry's tome into cinematic visuals, keeping as true as possible to the facts while bringing out the emotional core of the story, to open up a classic book to new audiences.
