Following in the footsteps of history's greatest polar explorers, such as Robert Scott, Douglas Mawson and Roald Amundsen-and inspired by a friend's fight with breast cancer-Australian doctor Geoff Wilson set himself the incredible goal of dragging his pink boobsled across 3,400 kilometers of the most brutal terrain on earth. His goal was to complete a coast-to-coast crossing of the continent. Unlike the great explorers of the past, Geoff went into the expedition with virtually no polar experience. To survive, he had to battle ferocious blizzards with winds exceeding one hundred kilometers per hour, frostbite, deadly crevasses, loss of food and key equipment, and Antarctica's terrifying isolation. The experts gave him no chance of success-all saying that it was an impossible challenge for a rookie adventurer-but they were wrong. What unfolds is a gripping and inspiring story of polar survival and the incredible power of the human spirit when faced with almost impossible odds.
