2019, University of Minnesota Press, $14.95
No Horizon Is So Far follows explorers Liv Arnesen and Ann Bancroft—the first two women to cross Antarctica—from the planning of their expedition through their brutal trek as they walked, skied and ice-sailed for almost three months in temperatures as low as -35 degrees F, all while towing their 250-pound supply sledges across 1,700 miles of ice and dangerous crevasses. Through website transmissions and satellite phone calls, the women, both former schoolteachers, were able to broadcast their expedition to more than three million students in 65 countries, to teach geography, science and the importance of following your dreams.
