Toughing It Out: The Adventures Of A Polar Explorer And Mountaine by David Hempleman-Adams

The remarkable story of the man who has walked to the south pole and has climbed the highest mountain in every continent in the world. David Hempleman Adams ranks alongside Ranulph Fiennes and Chris Bonnington in the pantheon of British explorers and adventurers. Taking us close to his triumphs and to his near disasters - he describes his concerns about how his wife and children are coping without him at Christmas; his terror on Mount Everest, when a step in the wrong direction could result in death; and his feelings of euphoria when, 59 days after starting out across the Atlantic wastes, he sees the South Pole station glinting in the distance.
