Detailed Product Description
Canada, 1996, 1st edition. 222 pp, 24 excellent color photos. Hardcover with Dust Jacket, Like New. 

The story of the unsuccessful attempt in 1992 and the successful second expedition in 1995 in which Weber and Malakhov became the first to complete the 1500 kilometer unsupported journey from land to the North Pole and back.  

They encountered extreme weather conditions: repeated blizzards, jagged and shifting ice, treacherous open water and temperatures as low as -58 degrees C (-72 degrees F).  In the last bid for success and for life itself, they would have to use up all their remaining resources of energy, and abandon every scrap of equipment not essential to survival, then often having to leap from floe to floe in their attempt to gain dry land and secure their place in history. A story of endurance.
