On Thin Ice
When renowned explorer Eric Larsen skied out onto the Arctic ice cap in March 2014, he knew that the odds were against himself and fellow adventurer Ryan Waters. They were embarking upon one of the hardest endeavors on the planet, a self-supported human powered journey to the North Pole over five-hundred miles away. A trip that was increasingly becoming impossible to accomplish due to the rapidly deteriorating conditions of the ice he must traverse due to global warming.
Over the next sixty-three days Larsen is forced to confront the impulses that have led him to the spot that he is in, and why he continues to take risks attempting expeditions that could lead to his death. Part memoir, part meditation, part commentary on the environmental changes occurring worldwide. The book takes readers along with him as he continually battles the elements, deteriorating conditions, and his own frailties on what ultimately became the last successful over ice trip to the North Pole.
