"On the 4th May, 1973, Cato Zahl Pedersen received an electric shock of 17,000 volts. The fourteen-year-old hovered between life and death and would lose one entire arm and half the other. On the 4th November, 1994, Cato Zahl Pedersen found himself in Antarctica with Odd Harald Hauge and Lars Ebbesen. Before the three Norwegians lay the most desolate continent on earth, behind them sledges weighing 265 lbs. Their objective was the South Pole, 850 miles of ice, cold, wind, snow ridges and crevasses. Everyone said they would never manage it. Read how the 'Unarmed to the South Pole' expedition tackled the unthinkable, how Cato Zahl Pedersen managed the second longest polar journey of all time, without depots or other help. This is a story that will inspire everyone, the able-bodied and the disabled alike."
