Minnesota Historical Society Press (October 15, 2015)
Follow Will Steger and Paul Schurke, along with six others and 49 dogs, as they set out to complete the first ever confirmed "unsupported" expedition to the North Pole.
On March 7, 1986, the seven men and one woman of the Steger International Polar Expedition set out by dogsled to reach the North Pole. Their spectacular feat of daring, courage, and commitment was deemed by National Geographic to be a “landmark in polar exploration.” The melting of the polar ice cap makes it unlikely that anyone will repeat their achievement.
