Over the years, Lonnie Dupre has embarked on many adventures, but none can compare to the 15 months he and fellow explorer John Hoelscher spent kayaking and dog-sleding their way around the unexplored wilderness of Greenland. Filled with photographs, this book tells the story of their dramatic adventure in the endless tundra, coping with wind chills that reach minus 59 degrees and dwindling food supplies and the day-to-day challenges of travelling the country where "ice is born".

Lonnie Dupre (born 17 April 1961) is an American contemporary Arctic explorer whose achievements include the first Pacific to Atlantic winter traversal of the Northwest Passage by dog sled in 1991 and the first human-powered circumnavigation of Green.

A lovely coffee table book with superb photos of Greenland, short texts tying some photos together. Really enjoyed reading this in preparation for our Greenland expedition. Am keeping the book, although I usually pass my travel prep bookstore local library. (Good option for books in good condition, they shelve some, incorporating into their library collection, and sell the rest to raise funds for more books..plus it's a charitable donation)

A nice coffee table book. Nice photos. I'm planning a trip to Greenland next month. My photos won't be this awesome.

Who are you seller? These were THE nicest books I have EVER received via internet. You gave me what I asked for. They were conditioned as you stated. I want to do more business w/you as I has two other orders recently - one not at all as advertised, the other not what I wanted. I have been so disappointed so many times over the years. Thank you sincerely!

The author told an interesting story about Greenland. It was especially valuable to me because my son has worked at the Scientific Station at the Summit for the past eight years. The book helped me to understand the country and the conditions under which these people live.

I found this book about the adventures of Lonnie Dupre and John H. to be very inspiring and thrilling. Reading Lonnie's journal entries about their daily encounters with nature, the elements, and personal interaction was a keyhole into their mindset.
The pictures were breathtaking and certainly enhanced the message Lonnie gave the reader. I would recommend this book to any active adventurer and/or armchair adventurer interested in the polar regions and dog sledding.
