About the author

Felicity Aston is the first and only woman in the world to ski across Antarctica alone. The 1744km, 59-day journey completed in January 2012 earned her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. In 2015 she was awarded the Queen’s Polar Medal for services in Antarctica and was appointed MBE for services to Polar Exploration. Felicity has also been elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in London and is a Fellow of The Explorers Club in New York.

Felicity has been exploring the polar regions for more than twenty years. Previous expeditions include the first British women’s crossing of Greenland, a 35,000km expedition in a Land Rover Defender to the Pole of Cold (the coldest inhabited place in the world) and the 38-day, 911km Kaspersky Lab Commonwealth Antarctic Expedition in 2009, the largest and most international women’s team ever to ski to the South Pole. Her book about this international expedition, ‘Call of the White: Taking the World to the South Pole’ was published in March 2011 and was a finalist in the Banff Mountain Book Competition. She has written two further books, ‘Alone in Antarctica’ (which was named a National Geographic Fall Read of 2014) and ‘Chasing Winter: A journey to the Pole of Cold’.

Trained as a Physicist and Meteorologist, Felicity’s first polar experience, at 23, was as a scientist with the British Antarctic Survey. Based for three years on a remote research station on the Antarctic Peninsula, her job was to monitor climate and ozone. In 2013 she co-presented a two-part series for BBC Science exploring atmospheric physics and cloud science called, ‘Operation Cloud Lab: Secrets of the Skies’ and in 2016 she co-presented a three-part series for BBC History called ‘Operation Gold Rush’ retracing the route of the 1898 Klondike stampede across the Yukon.

Felicity regularly publishes her words and photography in online and print publications around the world (Geographical Magazine, Huffington Post, CNN, The Guardian, The Hill) as well as appearing in international print and broadcast media (BBC Radio 4, National Geographic Radio, Outside, Vanity Fair, Discovery Magazine) and is a sought-after professional speaker, delivering presentations about her expeditions to some of the biggest companies (Microsoft, Google, Goldmann Sachs, Deloitte, HSBC) and at the most influential idea-exchanging events (Globe Series, Women's Forum for Economy and Society, Chicago Ideas Week, TEDx).

Synopsis

What does it take to ski to the North Pole? British Polar Explorer, Felicity Aston MBE, sets out to dismantle stereotypes and challenge cultural barriers by gathering a novice team of ten women from across Europe and the Middle East to ski together over the frozen Arctic Ocean to the North Pole. As boldly pioneering as the expedition, this account of the journey is told by each team member in their own words, to vividly reveal the determination, bravery and humour necessary to reach the top of the world.

Set against a backdrop of Arctic pack ice that is thinner, newer and less stable than ever before having been steadily diminished by climate change, team members reccount the highs and lows of preparing and training for the expedition as well as the terrifying reality of the Arctic Ocean; a landscape that feels like solid ground underfoot but is actually a constantly shifting patchwork of unpredictable, un-navigable, intimidating ice, roamed by polar bears and at temperatures three times colder than the inside of a home freezer.

Overcoming personal struggles as well as group adversity, the team's collective experiences provide rare insight of Western and Arabian cultures, providing greater understanding and a deeper appreciation of our common humanity.

This is a story that has the power to inspire us all to reach beyond the expectation of others and to fulfil our own ultimate life ambitions.

Why support this book?

  • The expedition already has a readymade international audience of sponsors and supporters, and has generated over 1500 media articles translating into more than 450 million opportunities to see or hear about the expedition globally.
  • There is a feature-length documentary of the expedition by U.S. film-maker Holly Morris due for global release in 2021
  • Expedition leader and lead author, Felicity Aston, has previously published three acclaimed books and has an established media profile as well as being a sought after public speaker with a personal social media following of +13.5k
  • Several team members are the first from their country to ski to the North Pole and national interest in their story is high. They are rapidly creating profiles and establishing themselves as speakers while others already have large followings/audiences in their own countries with a combined social media following of +50k
  • The themes of the book cover the most high-profile topics of the moment (especially in the wake of the Me Too and Black Lives Matter movements) such as gender equality, diversity, relations between Western and Islamic cultures, and the climate crisis.

Similar titles

  • 'Harry's Arctic Heroes: Walking With The Wounded on the expedition of a lifetime' by Mark McCrum (Sphere, 2011). The story of a ski expedition to the North Pole, told from the perspective of multiple team members. Focus on a British, male and military audience whereas our story is female-focused, international, and multi-cultural about a team of highly-relatable 'ordinary' novices.
  • 'No Horizon Is So Far' by Liv Arnesen and Ann Bancroft with Cheryl Dahle (Penguin Books, 2004). An account of an all-female Antarctic expedition with the aim of inspiring others written from the perspective of both team members. We aim for a similarly inspirational engagement of the audience but our larger team has a broader representation of women and an additional multicultural dimension.
  • 'The Birthday Boys' by Beryl Bainbridge (Penguin Books, 1993). A fictional account of Robert Falcon Scott's 1910 Antarctic expedition told from multiple character perspectives. We are working on a non-fiction account of a modern polar expedition using a similar multi-perspective device.

Audience

This book will appeal to anyone who has ever wondered if they are capable of more. Whether looking for personal inspiration or lessons to translate into business and worklife, this is a story that resonates long after the last page and continues to provide motivation, hope and understanding. Perfect for armchair travellers and committed adventurers alike, the story provides insights of culture, environment, the realities of climate change, working within a team and leading complex endeavours.
