While I have read more about the Antarctica so far, as opposed to the Arctic side of the book, I would like to recommend this to people of all ages with an interest for the far reaches of our planet. At times, the reader will become so engrossed in the stories that are written in 1st person, she will want to curl up in a warm blanket and become VERY thankful for all comforts we take for granted, especially the healthy benefits of the sun. This book is hard to put down and luckily each individual story allows you to read bit by bit. You will discover how incredibly wonderful these brave men had such determination to succeed on their journeys into the wild, wicked, and unrelenting frozen tundras. I thank all who have made this book possible and I will cherish it forever.
