Polar Dream: The Heroic Saga of the First Solo Journey by a Woman & Her Dog to the Pole

Polar Dream: The Heroic Saga of the First Solo Journey by a Woman & Her Dog to the Pole Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone told her it couldn't be done...especially by a woman. But in 1988, fifty-year-old Helen Thayer, accompanied only by her black husky Charlie, became the first woman ever to ski solo to the North Pole. After overcoming her first obstacle--the unrelenting discouragement she received before setting out--she and Charlie braved brutal temperatures, violent storms, treacherous ice floes, marauding polar bears, and eventually, near starvation. Not only a remarkable adventure story, Polar Dream is also a testament to the intense bond of love and trust that develop between an adventurer and her dog. Whoever said the North Pole was no place for a woman, especially one without a whole team of sled dogs, didn't know Helen and Charlie.
