262 p. : ill., maps ; 24 cm.

"In 1910, Captain Robert Scott prepared his crew for a trip that no one had ever completed: a journey to the South Pole. He vowed to get there any way he could, even if it meant looking death in the eye. Then, not long before he setout, the telegram arrived: 'Proceeding to Antarctic - Roald Amundsen.' What was to be an expedition had become a race. One hundred and eight years later, Captain Louis Rudd readied himself for a similarly grueling task: the first solo crossing of treacherous Antarctica. Then came the Instagram message: 'On Nov. 1, I depart for the ice - Colin O'Brady.' What was to be a journey had become a race . . . this tale of two history-making moments is perfect for budding scientists, survivalists, and thrill seekers"--Provided by publisher.
