This book's subject is fascinating and the details are well-researched. However, the pony's narration is jarring --- it sometimes seems that he must be widely read and yet he also can't recognize a thermometer. Moreover, the sentimentality expressed by the men is just a little weird and hard to believe as is the pony's devotion to his handler. ( )

Loved this book. Tragic and beautifully written true account of the doomed Scott Expedition to the South Pole. Told by one of the expeditions unsung heroes, Jimmy Pigg, a white pony. ( )

I really enjoyed this book and as with The Giant Slayer after finishing it I was immediately on the internet trying to find out more information. I haven't cried like that since I was 9 and read Where the Red Fern Grows. It is a powerful story, I highly recommend reading the author's note at the end as well. It may be hard to read for people of more tender sensibilities, but it is a good representation of the actual expedition. A good historical novel for junior readers. ( )
