SUMMARY

Catharine Hartley, a young woman with no previous polar experience, broke three world records when she took part in the first extreme tourist expedition to the Antarctic and Arctic in 1999 and 2001. Catharine and her companion Fiona Thorne became the first British women of any nationality to have man-hauled their sleds to both. When Catharine listed walking to the South Pole among her New Year's resolutions, her friends reacted with skepticism and laughter, for she is not your usual polar explorer complete with beard and grim toughness. This is the story of a thirty-something city girl who leaves behind a life of failed relationships and too many cigarettes in her search for respect, success, and herself.Hartley, Catharine is the author of 'To the Poles', published 2004 under ISBN 9780753198957 and ISBN 0753198959.
