What is it like to take 8 humans and mush dozens of dogs to the North Pole, one of the most inhospitable places on Earth? You can find out in the book North to the Pole by Will Steger and Paul Schurke.
In this book, you will find a tale of hardship, triumph, conflict, pain, and death. When embarking on a major expedition, you think you’re aware of the pain you’ll suffer. On the second day, the team had its first dose of suffering and it didn’t end until a week before their triumph.
The book is well written and easy to follow. Steger’s writing style is simple and straight-forward. There’s no reason to go crazy with this text when the experience is crazy enough. This is a great reference for people who like to armchair expedition as well as though who are really thinking about it (like me).
It’s a definite buy!
