About DEAD MEN
The discovery of Captain Scott’s body in the Antarctic in November 1912 started a global obsession with him as a man and an explorer. One mystery remains – why did he and his companions spend their last ten days in a tent 11 miles from the relative safety of a large food and fuel depot?
Birdie Bowers, an infamously secretive painter, is a woman with a dead man’s name. Her parents were obsessed by her namesake, Henry ‘Birdie’ Bowers, one of Scott’s companions. Almost a hundred years after his death, she is determined to discover what really happened to him. On her way to view some of the things recovered from Scott’s tent, she collapses, and is rescued by Adam, a bored computer geek, who falls in love with her, to the extent of agreeing to travel to the Antarctic with her to discover the site of Scott’s tent, now under 30 metres of ice.
