9780939165452: Polar Dream: The First Solo Expedition by a Woman and Her Dog to the Magnetic North Pole

In 1988, at the age of 50, Helen Thayer became the first woman in the world to travel on foot to the magnetic North Pole, one of the world's most remote and dangerous regions. Her only companion was Charlie, her loyal husky, who was integral to her survival. Polar Dream is the story of their heroic trek and extraordinary relationship as they faced polar bears, unimaginable cold, and a storm that destroyed most of their supplies and food. A new epilogue, maps, and many previously unpublished expedition photographs are new to this second edition. "A page-turner.... Fully captures the drama of what was a remarkable achievement." — The Washington Times

From the Publisher:

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.

"A terrifying chronicle of an extraordinary endeavor."--Booklist

"An exciting story of human endurance and of a remarkable animal."--Publishers Weekly
