Title: Crossing Antarctica.
Description: NY, Knopf, 1992. 1st ed. VG in VG DJ. In March 1990, Steger completed what no man had ever before attempted: the crossing of Antarctica on foot. He and his. International Trans-Antarctica Team had performed an extraordinary feat of endurance. Six men and 36 specially bred and trained huskies took 220 days to cross the 7th continent. By sled and ski they covered more than 3,700 miles, surviving brutal weather (windchills of -150, winds raging beyond 100 mph), traversing plains of ice riddled with deep and deadly crevasses, and mountain ranges as high as 11,400 feet. Back half of book rumpled as if damp at one time.
