Chronicling the world's most difficult race through the eyes of one who ran it, this vivid and humorous memoir shares the adventures of inspiring contestants-including a wheelchair-bound runner and three record-breaking grandmothers-as they trek across the daunting terrain of extinct volcanoes, craggy mountain peaks, and the turbulent Drake passage, all in a quest to complete the Antarctica Marathon. Revealing the runners' struggles against melting glaciers and hostile skuas, the narrative also recounts their unique experiences with curious penguins and whale sightings. Spotlighting the people.
