Dr David M. Wilson, his great nephew, and David B. Elder, a local Cheltenham librarian, have collaborated to produce the first biography of Edward Wilson for many years. It is richly illustrated with photographs and paintings, many of which are being made available to the public for the first time. The book traces the Cheltenham roots of Edward Wilson's extraordinary life, identifies many of the local sights associated with him, and follows him through to his death with Captain Scott on the return from the South Pole in 1912.
