HOW TO GET TO THE NORTH POLE: AND OTHER ICONIC ADVENTURES is a new book written by seasoned adventurer Tim Moss. With input from over 50 different explorers, comprehensive chapters take you through the details of seven classic expeditions from crossing a desert to climbing an unclimbed mountain. If you’re rowing an ocean where do you sleep at night? How do you go to the loo at sea? If you cycle around the world, what difficulties will you face and how will you overcome them?
From armchair adventurer to those simply looking for practical advice, this book is aimed at anyone who’s ever dreamed of doing something BIG!”
