From School Library Journal Grade 4 Up. Outstanding photographs, interest-grabbing journal entries, and myriad Arctic travel-related tidbits of information are packed into this visually appealing account of Will Steger's 1995 expedition across the North Pole via skis, dog sled, and canoe-sled. Starting from the western edge of Siberia, 4 men and 2 women from 5 countries and 33 dogs began their 4-month adventure across the constantly shifting frozen Arctic Ocean to the northern edge of Canada. The powerfully descriptive words and well-captioned, action-intense pictures give readers a "you are there" sensation as they pore over images of the team's challenging, life-threatening, awe-inspiring experiences. Interspersed with Steger's personalized account are background information and facts about the expedition; a brief history of Arctic exploration; a geographic description of the Arctic Ocean; mini-biographies of the team members and the dogs; and a supply list. Teachers will find this a useful title to supplement units on journal writing, discovery and exploration, cooperation and teamwork, expedition planning, decision-making and problem-solving skills, survival, the Arctic ecosystem, and environmental studies. This riveting photo-journal is a winner.?Roz Goodman, Bering Strait School District Media Center, Unalakleet,

From Gr. 4^-7. Modern equipment such as sophisticated navigational tools and a connection to the Internet ease Arctic travel somewhat, but as Steger's account makes clear, crossing the Arctic Ocean is still a thrilling, grueling, and perilous journey. The book first describes the purpose of the trip and introduces the hardy, courageous members of the team, both human and canine, before embarking on the diary-like narrative of the trek. Written with a crispness and an immediacy, the narrative reads like an adventure story, with dramatic, compelling photographs (like that of a team member with his beard frozen into tiny icicles) adding greatly to the interest.
