Historian Isobel Williams has appointed book PR agency Palamedes PR to promote her book, With Scott In The Antarctic: Edward Wilson, Explorer, Naturalist, Artist.
Williams is a retired consultant physician who has gone on to become a widely respected author, cruise speaker and lecturer on the history of polar exploration.
With Scott In The Antarctic is an acclaimed biography of Edward Wilson (1872-1912), who accompanied Robert Falcon Scott on both his celebrated Antarctic voyages: the Discovery Expedition of 1901-1904 and the Terra Nova Expedition of 1910-1913.
While trained as a physician, Wilson was also a skilled artist and his drawings and paintings lavishly illustrated both expeditions. Williams’s biography is the first full account of the Antarctic hero, who died with Scott and the rest of the exploration team upon their ill-fated return.
