Experts told Jock Wishart his idea to take a rowing boat to the 1996 position of the Magnetic North Pole was impossible, even foolhardy. In August 2011 he proved them wrong, completing a remarkable voyage through the Arctic rowing in waters that were, until recently, covered by ice all year round. FURTHEST NORTH tells the amazing story of the voyage of the Old Pulteney. The crew battled against icebergs, ferocious winds and dangerous currents, even hauling their boat over ice to reach their goal. There are close encounters with Polar Bears and glimpses of the permanent residents of the Arctic who's world is in peril. Rod Macrae's engaging factual account is matched by stunning photography taken by the crew on their unique adventure. It is a story for our time documenting a journey that could only be attempted becasue of the impact of climate change on the fragile wilderness world of the Arctic.
