"Men like to conquer, fight, or subdue the Arctic, while we had a different attitude. We felt that we had to go along with what we were faced with. . . . We tried to have the Arctic on our side instead of confronting it." In 1997 a group of 20 women set out to become the world's first all-female expedition to the North Pole, hoping to raise awareness and support for sufferers of cancer and other illnesses. Sue Riches, recently recovering from a mastectomy, and her daughter Victoria were among them, and this is their inspirational story of personal accomplishment.
Sue Riches is now a writer and a lecturer. Victoria Humphries is a speaker and life coach. Dawn French is an award-winning comedy writer and actor, and the author of Dear Fatty.

"An uplifting story . . . and simply told."  —Daily Telegraph

"The subject matter—the first all-female expedition to the North Pole—is compelling. . . . The authors render their often life-threatening experiences with humility, honesty, and a vital sense of humor. Simply, the narrative is unique and gratifying in that it reveals the human side of an inhuman challenge."  —Independent

"This story is a fantastic celebration of adventure, courage, friendship and love. Enjoy it all you would be adventurers . . . and dream on!"  —Dawn French
