Thomas Griffith Taylor was an early 20th-century English explorer known for surviving the Terra Nova Expedition to Antarctica with Robert Scott. The specifics of this adventure were published in 1916 under the title “With Scott; the Silver Lining”. In this book, Taylor describes the ship, storms and blizzards, geological discoveries, studies of iceberg and glacier erosion, use of dogs and dog teams, arrival and settlement at Cape Evans, and much more. According to Rosove,

“The book was less popular than other primary accounts, probably because it was more difficult to read – but as a result it is also the scarcest of the expedition’s firsthand narratives.”
