Publisher's Summary

Pen Hadow is an authentic British hero, one of the world's most experienced and successful living polar explorers. In spring 2003, fulfilling a deathbed vow to his father, he became the first man ever to complete a solo trek to the North Pole from the far more arduous and hazardous North American side. The nine days he then spent weatherbound at the Pole with dwindling supplies catapulted him to worldwide fame. Pen's extraordinary story, set in the context of the history of polar exploration, moves, inspires, and uplifts.

A compelling journey of battling through adversity and self determination, Pen's narative subdues the true hardships endured in the most hostile of environments. A fascinating insight into mind body and soul to complete such an epic crossing.

Solo - On Solid Ice

I like stories about travel, exploration and survival,usually in exotic, harsh environments(anywhere outside of Dublin,Ireland) so I really enjoyed this. It's a story about true British grit and determination and the human desire to follow a life long dream and to excel at something beyond the everyday. Follow Pen across the Arctic ocean for a measured, straight forward, honest, but none the less enthralling account of his solo attempt to reach the North Pole and why he decided to do it in the first place...
