On March 7, 1986, the seven men and one woman of the Steger International Polar Expedition set out by dogsled to reach the North Pole. Their spectacular feat of daring, courage, and commitment was deemed by National Geographic to be a "landmark in polar exploration." The melting of the polar ice cap makes it unlikely that anyone will repeat their achievement.

About the Author:

Paul Schurke, entrepreneur, educator, and co-founder of Wilderness Inquiry, operates Wintergreen, a resort offering lodge-based dogsledding vacations near Ely, Minnesota.

From School Library Journal:

YA Technological advances may have made for a shrinking planet, and once- inaccessible places are no longer as re mote as they used to be, but the North Pole still retains its allure. In 1986, the Steger International Polar Expedition, comprised of seven men and one wom an, started for the pole with 3 tons of supplies, pulled by dogsled and human muscle; 55 days later, they reached the North Pole. North to the Pole is the story of not only those 55 days, but also of the planning and preparation that went into the expedition. It is also the story of the expedition members them selves and of the spirit and will power that drives people onward over terrain so treacherous that an entire day's march could cover as little as one and a half miles. That the spirit of adventure and human determination are alive and well is the message of this book. In the face of that, it seems almost superflu ous to say also that North to the Pole is a well-written and well-paced book, as entertaining as it is informative. Karl Penny, Houston Public Library
