With the record breaking purpose of the expedition, it would be easy to write a pompous account of how great an achievement was made.

    An inspiring account of alex hibbert's attempts firstly to journey to the south pole, then secondly to the north pole, and after these proposed expeditions failed due to lack of sponsorship, thirdly to journey totally unsupported across arctic greenland and back.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    An incredible achievement, demanding tremendous physical and mental endurance, culminating in near-starvation; a journey totalling 1374 miles in 113 days, the longest fully unsupported polar journey in history.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Alex takes time to describe not only the journey itself, but how the journey came about, including all the trials and tribulations of trying to get a polar expedition off the ground in the face of troubled economic times.

    The writing style leaves you completely absorbed in the story and even with advance knowledge of the outcome of the expedition, you'll find yourself willing alex and george on to succeed in their mission.

    I guess a book about skiing over snow for a long time could be fairly repetitive, but this one isn't.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    All fascinating, and in enough detail to feel something of what they were feeling, but not so detailed as to be a technical manual.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    It doesn't exaggerate any of the events that occurred because there was no need.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    There are now so many novel, quirky, convoluted, and eye catching adventures, and so many accounts written about them, that it is increasingly difficult to discern where you should invest your time and money.
