The author was the first woman to cross Antarctica on skis and I enjoyed reading about the physical & environmental challenges as well as the human interest and philosophical aspects of her journey.

At times it seemed like I was reading a fictionalized rerun of The Glass Castle but Ms. Walls is an extraordinary writer so it was very enjoyable reading.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“I am looking for friends. What does that mean -- tame?"

"It is an act too often neglected," said the fox. "It means to establish ties."

"To establish ties?"

"Just that," said the fox. "To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world....”
