5.0 out of 5 stars
An inspiring read, 5 Aug. 2011
This is a brilliant account of Felicity's skills in creating a team of diverse women and leading them on a journey of a lifetime.From the initial idea of taking a team of women from different Commonwealth countries , some without any experience
of snow never mind antartica, and competing a trek to the South Pole, is incredible. This book contains it all,logistic and
finance problems,the race across the world to interview candidates for the enduing trip, to the humour of the 'louis poo-uitton bags' , and the personality clashes with some of the team members.I felt sorry for one girl who had malaria and had to stand down at the last moment.
I think this book rates along side Ranulph Fiennes accounts of extreme journeys and is a must read for anyone interested in the subject. I hear that Felicity is to embark on a solo ski trek across antartica and look forward to reading her tale of it, as well as wishing her well.
