Description:
In a feat that ranks with the brave and inspiring deeds of Scott of the Antarctic, Sir Edmund Hillary and Jessica Watson, famed Australian ultramarathon runner Pat Farmer did what no human has ever done: run from the North Pole to South Pole. His mission: to raise money for the Red Cross to fund water projects in the world's neediest regions. Setting out from the North Pole in April 2011, Farmer ran 21,000 kilometres through 14 countries including Canada, the United States, Mexico, El Salvador, Colombia and Chile. In the run, which took him nearly a year to complete, he averaged an incredible 85 km a day - that's two marathons every day, with no days off. On his epic adventure, Farmer faced freezing cold, polar bears and ice crevasses; searing heat and rattlesnakes; guerrillas, drug cartels and killer highway traffic; humidity and dangerous wildlife; and the stamina-sapping high altitudes of the Andes. He suffered injuries, collisions and saw first-hand the brutality of life in some of the most dangerous places on earth. He cheated death time and again. The raw and honest chronicle of Pat Farmer's run from Pole to Pole is a deeply personal diary accompanied by stunning photography. Share in Farmer's triumphs, challenges and despair as he runs and runs and runs from one end of the earth to the other.
