To hear Ann Bancroft tell it, she got hooked on the idea of polar travel as a young girl, reading the accounts of Ernest Shackleton. Unlike most of us she did something about it - 8 years ago, she made it to the North Pole by dogsled. That apparently wasn't enough. When she discovered that a Norwegian woman Liv Arnesen had also been captivated by the journals of the Antarctic, the two of them decided to team up and try to cross the entire continent on skis. It took them over three months, but they did it! We asked Ann Bancroft if the adventure lived up to her expectations.
