Detailed Product Description
New York, Arbor House, 1983, 1st edition. 547 pp, mapped end papers, color photos, maps. Hardcover with dust jacket. May have chipped jacket. Book is fine. Near Fine to Fine.

Foreword by H.R.H. Prince Charles. The Transglobe Expedition was the first expedition to make a circumpolar navigation, traveling the world 'vertically' traversing both of the poles using only surface transport. Starting in 1979 from Greenwich in the United Kingdom, adventurers Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Charles R. Burton went south, arriving at the South Pole on 15 December 1980. Over the next 14 months, they went north again, reaching the North Pole on 11 April 1982. Travelling south once more, they arrived again in Greenwich on 29 August 1982. Oliver Shepard took part in the Antarctic leg of the expedition. 

The 100,000-mile route took the Transglobe Expedition team across the Sahara via Tombouctou, through the swamps and jungles of Mali and the Ivory Coast, over huge unexplored crevasse fields in Antarctica, through the inhospitable North West Passage, graveyard of so many famous venturers, and into the unpredictable hazards of the Arctic Ocean. Ranking alongside the journeys of Amundsen, Scott and Peary the Transglobe endeavour, a chance dream in 1972, became, on its completion ten years later, a truly historic voyage.
