Mind over Matter: The Epic Crossing of the Antarctic Continentby Ranulph Fiennes
Two men, two 485-pound sleds, 1500 miles of the most-forbidding landscape in the world-with no room for error. In 1991 Ranulph Fiennes hailed as the worlds greatest living explorer by the Guinness Book of World Records & his partner, Dr. Mike Stroud, set out to do what Fiennes secretly believed was impossible: complete an unsupported crossing of Antarctica. Hauling supplies for the entire journey, they began at Berkner Island. Ninety-five days later, the men were emaciated, sick, wounded, & nearly blind-locked in an incredible struggle against defeat. . . & death. Illustrated. Maps & diagrams.
