about

An inspirational account of eight women on one very unique expedition
 
Felicity Aston challenged women in many countries, asking if they could ski to the South Pole, as she set out to create the most international all-female expedition ever to the Pole. The team would not be experienced explorers but "ordinary" women who want to inspire others to follow their dreams. She received more than 800 applications and led a team from places as diverse as Jamaica, India, Singapore, and Cyprus—some of whom had never even seen snow or spent the night in a tent before joining the expedition—on one of the toughest journeys on the planet. Eighty-mile-an-hour winds ripped through base camp, frostbite and injuries were an everyday occurrence, and deadly crevasses cracked beneath their feet. This is their story of newfound strength, persistence, and friendships.
Felicity Aston is an expedition leader, public speaker, and freelance travel writer. Her past achievements include leading the first British women's team across Greenland, completing the infamous Marathon Des Sables across the Sahara, as well as working as a meteorologist in the Antarctic for three years.
