From the Stories From History series, The Race to the South Pole takes a completely factual look at the all but impossible journey to the South Pole. This book is presented in a fast-paced, edgy graphic novel format including bright, action-packed scenes.

In the early 1900s, one destination remained untouched by human beings – the South Pole. Antarctica’s ruthless weather, including blizzards and temperatures that can reach -119ºF in the winter, made human beings’ attempts to reach this remote location all but impossible. However, two extraordinary men were determined to overcome the odds in a race to reach the South Pole. Thus began their voyage of frostbite, starvation, fame, and for some death. The Race to the South Pole is sure to capture any reader’s attention and turn even the most casual reader into a history buff!
