When did humans first reach the South Pole? Why was there a race to get there? What discoveries did the first people to reach the Pole make? Take a journey back in time, and discover the facts behind a race that fascinated the world. It was a race between rival expeditions whose leaders both became heroes. A race in which some competitors paid the ultimate price--their lives. Find out about the difficulties the expeditions faced: the coldest temperatures on Earth, the high winds and storms, and the long distances they had to cross. Learn more about the world's harshest environment--the Antarctic--and the brave men who battled across it in the hope of victory.
