About this book
Aston describes her mission to put together an all-female international team to ski to the South Pole. She led the team from places as diverse as Jamaica, India, Singapore and Cyprus, many of whom had never even seen snow before, on one of the toughest journeys on the planer. The book's publication coincides with International Women's Day and Commonwealth Day, two causes that underpin the book.
Could you ski to the South Pole? That was the challenge that British Adventurer, Felicity Aston put to women as she set out to create the most international all-female expedition ever to the South Pole. At the close of 2009, Felicity led a team from Jamaica, India, Singapore, and Cyprus on a 900 km skiing trek across the Antarctic.
