An inspirational account of eight women on one very unique expeditionFelicity Aston challenged women in many countries, asking if they could ski to the South Pole, as she set out to create the most international all-female expedition ever to the Pole. The team would not be experienced explorers but "ordinary" women who want to inspire others to follow their dreams. She received more than 800 applications andled a team from places as diverse as Jamaica, India, Singapore, and Cyprus some of whom had never even seen snow or spent the night in a tent before joining the expedition on one of the toughest journeys on the planet. Eighty-mile-an-hour winds ripped through base camp, frostbite and injuries were an everyday occurrence, anddeadly crevasses cracked beneath their feet. This is their story of newfoundstrength, persistence, and friendships."

Recenzii

'... author Felicity Aston describes how she led an expedition of "ordinary women" from all over the world - including some who had never seen snow - on one of the world's toughest journeys, skiing to the South Pole. The results: frostbite, injuries, hardships - and also newfound persistence, strength, and friendship.' Publishers Weekly (USA)
