Detailed Product Description
Oslo, 1994, 1st edition. 160 pp, 50+ color photos. In Norwegian. Large hardcover with dust jacket. Fine condition.

The story of Kagge's three record-breaking expeditions: to the North Pole in 1990, to the South Pole in 1992-1993, and Mount Everest in 1994.
 
Kagge is among Norway's most acclaimed polar explorers and one of the greatest adventurers of our time. He is the first person to accomplish the ''three pole challenge'' of reaching the North Pole, the South Pole and the summit of Mount Everest.

In 1990, Erling Kagge and Břrge Ousland became the first men ever to reach the North Pole unsupported. The expedition started from Ellesmere Island on March 8, 1990 and reached the North Pole 58 days later on May 4, 1990. They traveled approximately 800 kilometers on skies pulling their supplies on a sledge.

Less than three years later, in 1992-93, Kagge completed the first unsupported expedition to the South Pole, covering the 814-mile (1310 km) route in 52 days. Kagge had no radio contact to the outside world for the duration of his expedition. His was featured on the international edition of TIME magazine on March 1, 1993.

In 1994, Kagge summited Mount Everest, thus becoming the first person to complete the ''Three Poles Challenge.''

After his record-breaking feat of reaching the ''three poles,'' Kagge attended Cambridge University to read philosophy for three terms. In 1996, he founded Oslo-based publishing house, Kagge Forlag, which quickly grew to become one of Norway’s most profitable publishing companies. In 2000 Kagge Forlag acquired one of Norway’s oldest publishing companies, J.M. Stenersens Forlag. Kagge himself has written five books which have sold more than 100,000 copies.

Adventure and exploration remain intrinsic to his nature, and Kagge continues to do major expeditions, although with a lower profile than in the nineties.
