When British Explorer Aston put out an open call for women with little to no experience willing to brave the elements on an expedition to the North Pole, she was stunned to have over 1000 applicants. After narrowing it down to ten women from ten different countries—some of whom had never seen snow before—Felicity led the team through two years of training for this unique opportunity.

This is a riveting account of that remarkable journey, told in the words and images of the team members themselves: the grueling training in Iceland and Oman, the meticulous preparation, the terrifying conditions of the Arctic, and the triumphant moment when they reach the North Pole. Aston skillfully weaves the team’s individual memories into the greater expedition narrative, allowing us to share the joy, pain, and determination of these intrepid women who faced the realities of polar bears, extreme temperatures, and the possibility that anything and everything could go wrong at any moment as they made their way to the top of the world.
