Historia said, "I also found 2 more Antarctica books as well: Life on the Ice: No One Goes to Antarctica Alone by Roff Smith and No Horizon Is So Far: Two Women and Their Extraordinary Journey Across Antarctica by Liv Arnesen [and Ann Bancroft]."
In Life on the Ice, Roff Smith provides an account of several trips to Antarctica, where he visited the South Pole, the large American base at McMurdo, and the smaller bases that other countries maintain. He witnesses the final run of a geriatric sled dog team, the very last time dogs would be used in Antarctica and, in addition, he sailed through the Drake Passage and then around the coast in a yacht. (Note: There is also a book by this title for primary grades, but by a different author.)
No Horizon Is So Far narrates the story of two women making history. International educators and millions of students in 116 countries participated in an online curriculum as the two ex-schoolteachers began their grueling 2,300-mile journey in mid-November 2000. Liv Arnesen, 50, an Oslo resident, was the first woman to ski solo to the South Pole; her book about the journey was a bestseller in Norway. Ann Bancroft, 48, of Minnesota, was the first woman to cross the ice to both the North and South Poles; she was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame. In February 2001, Bancroft and Arnesen, who started as total strangers, became the first women to cross Antarctica on foot.
