Chris Fagan and her husband became the first American married couple to ski without guide, resupply or other assistance to the South Pole, and became Guinness World Record holders. This husband and wife team journeyed 570 miles over 48 days from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole. They stretched their minds, bodies, and marriage to the limit in the process of exploring one of the last wild frontiers on Earth in the midst of accelerating climate change. Riveting and inspiring, the story is about geography and exploration, the power of family and community, the adventurous spirit that dwells within us all, and breaking through to feel fully alive.
