This is a list of firsts in the Geographic North Pole. Peary and Henson's claim eventually won widespread acceptance, but now neither claim is widely accepted.

Here, Steger and Schurke recount the first dogsled conquest of the North Pole without resupply (. relying only on original provisions, with no airlift support) in 79 years. And a fearsome voyage it is: 55 agonizing days (""a far greater physical epic than any of us had ever imagined"") of trudging across treacherous ice, clambering over knife-edge ridges, huddling in frigid tents fouled by noxious fumes from overworked stoves.

Author Will Steger, Author Paul Schurke. Category: Nature & Environment. Their spectacular feat of daring, courage, and commitment was deemed by National Geographic to be a landmark in polar exploration. The melting of the polar ice cap makes it unlikely that anyone will repeat their achievement

Three decades after their greatest triumph, Paul Schurke and Will Steger still have the itch to explore. Both marked the 30th anniversary of their famed trek to the North Pole this week by launching new adventures, albeit a bit closer to home. Schurke, who still operates a dogsled adventure business near Ely, left Tuesday morning with one of the original 1986 sleds for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, where he was to meet up with adventurers Dave and Amy Freeman – who are in the midst of their own yearlong trek in the BWCAW

A first-person account of the 1986 dogsled expedition to the North Pole, the first to reach the North Pole without resupply since Robert E. Peary in 1909.

There are too few adventurers left. Will Serger and expedition crew chose to take on a challenge that few would dare or consider. preparation for such a challenge can only take you so far. One must be able to think on one's feet to overcome obstacles along the way. This book chronicles such feats. it is a good read for both the armchair adventurer and the wannabe adventurer.

This book gives you a real feeling of what it's like to be in the Arctic, trying to reach the North Pole. The feeling of intense cold is particularly well rendered, by one who lived through it. Under conditions of intense cold, even the simplest action, such as attaching velcro strips of gloves to one another, takes so much "warm up" action and so much focused attention -- and if you fail, you've got to start all over again with running around in circles or jumping up and down in order to warm up your fingertips enough to allow you to perform small actions such as attaching velcro strips to one another. A very worthwhile read, even if you never intend to visit the Arctic under these conditions.

I'm enjoying this book very much. Steger includes things like dealing with the press, finding sponsorships and wierd ethical questions ("what should we do with the body if one of us dies?!?") I was afraid it might be slow reading but it is not--he's a very good writer without being verbose.
