FURTHEST NORTH recounts the remarkable story following the Old Pulteney Row To The Pole expedition from its very beginnings through to its exhausting, dramatic, climax.
Beautifully illustrated with the photographs taken by the crew during the expedition, this is a fascinating, factual book about a unique polar and maritime adventure.
Experts told Jock Wishart that his idea of rowing a boat the 1996 certified position of the Magnetic North Pole was impossible, even foolhardy. In August 2011 he and his five crew proved them wrong.
He was clearly taking a risk in making the attempt, and history does not record any similar attempt to row the Arctic. However, as Rod Macrae's account of the expedition tells, climate change is altering this once ice-locked world and its millions of square miles of sea ice are melting.
The Old Pulteney boat ventured into the unknown. To reach the Pole position demonstrated how much is changing in this remote, deserted wilderness.
