Alone across the Arctic: One Woman's Epic Journey by Dog Team

by Pam Flowers Ann Dixon

Alone across the Arctic tells the gripping adventure story of Pam Flowers's solo trip across the North American arctic coast with her eight sled dogs. Inspired by Knud Rasmussen's pioneer 1923-24 expedition along the same route, Pam is the first woman to traverse the arctic coast alone. Pam's astounding year-long journey over 2,500 miles of frozen wilderness exposed her to heart-stopping perils, from intense blizzards and melting pack ice to a frightening polar bear encounter. With storytelling and journal extracts, she offers powerful insights into the challenges and rewards of such an epic achievement.
