No Horizon Is So Far
Two Women and Their Extraordinary Journey Across AntarcticaLarge Print - 2004
At ages 45 and 47, two former schoolteachers undertook an extraordinary journey: They set out to become the first women to cross the continent of Antarctica on foot. American Ann Bancroft and Norwegian Liv Arnesen would walk, ski, and ski-sail for nearly three months in temperatures as low as -35[degree]F, towing their 250-pound supply sledges across almost two thousand miles of crevasse-ridden ice. Though out of the reach of most modern technology for help or rescue, they connected over three million schoolchildren to the expedition via website transmissions and satellite phone calls. This true-life adventure explores what drove Ann and Liv across the ice and into hearts and history books around the world. Book jacket.
