In 2001, former schoolteachers Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen became the first women to cross the Antarctic continent on foot. Against all odds, they walked, skied, or ice-sailed for nearly three months in temperatures as cold as -35°F, towing their 250-pound supply sledges across 1700 miles of terrain riddled with rotten ice and deadly, hidden crevasses. Though modern technology could not ensure rescue, website transmissions and satellite phones enabled more than 3 million children from 65 countries to bear witness to the journey. No Horizon Is So Far explores what drove Ann and Liv across the ice and ultimately into hearts and history books around the world.
Discussion will be led by LDCW Director Dr. Young-ok An and Paddy Satzer of the St. Thomas Law Library.
