A New York Times Bestselling Author
At ages 45 and 47, two former schoolteachers set out to become the first women to cross 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 -35F, towing 250-pound supply sledges across two thousand miles of crevasse-ridden ice while connecting with millions of schoolchildren via Web site transmissions and satellite phone calls.
