Two nail-bitingly good stories of exploration, courage and adventure.

Edgar Evans, from Gower, is Captain Scott’s trusted companion as they struggle to be the first people to reach the South Pole.

Perce Blackborow, from Newport, is the only person to ever stowaway on an Antarctic expedition.

But the expedition went badly wrong and turned into one of the most amazing stories of survival the world has ever known.

This book brings their tales of great bravery to vivid life.

It is packed with fascinating facts from the worlds of geography and history, science and adventure.

All the books in the Wales and the World set include chapter questions, a subject-specific poem, a timeline and a glossary, to assist learning and understanding.


Learning has never been so much fun – or this exciting!
