Taken from DJ inner .......... "All the rapids, whirlpools, avalanches, deserts, swamps, communist bullets and faulty parachutes that have hitherto provided the obstacle courses in Ranulph Fiennes' eventful career take a poor second place when compared with travel on the North Polar Ice-cap in the freak winter of 1976-77.".
Ranulph Fiennes' story of what happened and how they survived is an incredible saga of fanatical optimism and singleness of purpose.
