Publisher Description

At the age of 50, Helen Thayer was the first woman in the world to travel alone to any of the world's Poles when she skied to the Magnetic North Pole without the aid of a dog team or snowmobile in one of the world's most remote and dangerous regions. Her only companion was Charlie, her loyal husky, who was integral to her survival. 


Polar Dream is the story of their heroic trek and extraordinary relationship as they faced polar bears, unimaginable cold, and a storm that destroyed most of their supplies and food. A new epilogue, maps, and many previously unpublished expedition photographs are new to this second edition.

Polar Dream review; second time around

This is one of the best written books in this genre that I have read. Now finishing my second reading, I found it as fascinating and thrilling as the first time I read it. Helen has made history and lives to tell a tremendous story that no work of fiction could ever match. The details are many but riveting and leaving me anxious to know more. I was so mentally involved in this journey that I took out an atlas and tried to follow along. I felt her fear of polar bears and her love for Charlie drawing me close to the moment by moment action she experienced. The reader will not be disappointed!
