Incredibly engaging …
… immerses you into the amazing world of polar exploration—full of larger-than-life adventures.
The stories—and the settings—are gripping, exhilarating and inspiring.
But this book is also about something much larger—the deep, true, higher nature of all human beings. These men displayed highly heroic and compassionate morality in countless situations where supreme sacrifices were required. They made difficult decisions based on core values such as loyalty, devotion, commitment, friendship, love and more.

We can all learn a lot from these heroic men, and in turn can incorporate these precious lessons into our own much-more-simple everyday lives.Lily O'Brien - San Francisco
