This riveting true-life adventure of suspense, danger, and endurance chronicles the extraordinary journey of American Ann Bancroft and Norwegian Liv Arnesen, two former schoolteachers, as they set out to become the first women to cross the continent of Antarctica on foot.  With their 250-pound supply sledges in tow, they walk, ski, and ski-sail for ninety-four days over 1,700 miles of crevasse-ridden ice, where any exposed skin would freeze in less than a minute, all while three million children from sixty-five countries tune in to their adventure via satellite phones and the Web.  A record of Arnesen and Bancroft's astounding adventure, No Horizon Is So Far is a stirring testament to two modern-day heroes.
