Summary
On 21st February 1968, Wally Herbert and his team of three companions and forty huskies set out from Point Barrow, Alaska, embarking on a journey that no one had ever attempted. Sixteen hard months later they finally set foot once more on solid land in Spitsbergen, having attained the North Pole and crossed the frozen Arctic Ocean for the first time. Travelling and living on ice that was in continual motion, sometimes buckling and breaking beneath them, they had endured exteme cold and months of winter darkness, and faced frequent encounters with polar bears. Though their achievement was overshadowed by the Apollo moon-landing, it stands today as one of the greatest expeditions of all time
