A GREAT TASK OF HAPPINESS: THE LIFE OF KATHLEEN SCOTT
Hydraulic Press of London 2012
Louisa Young is publishing a revised edition of her grandmother's biography - first published in 1995 by Macmillan - to celebrate the Centenary of Captain Scott's last expedition. Famous for being his widow, Kathleen was also a talented professional sculptor who studied in Paris with Rodin. She led a very adventurous and unusual life for a woman of her time, and made friends with people as diverse as Bernard Shaw, Fritjof Nansen, the WW1 Prime Minister Herbert Asquith and dancer Isadora Duncan.
