Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Colin O'Brady's awe-inspiring memoir recounts his triumphant recovery from a tragic accident and his gripping 932-mile crossing of the landmass of Antarctica solo, unsupported, and human-powered, the first to accomplish this extraordinary feat. Prior to December 2018, no individual had ever crossed the landmass of Antarctica alone and without any outside assistance. Yet Colin O'Brady was determined to do just that, even if, upon taking the first steps of what was to be a nearly two-month journey, he had his doubts. He was compelled by a curiosity for the unknown, his own competitive instincts, and the encouragement of his wife. His triumph over adversity and his stunning dedication have inspired millions.
Subject: O'Brady, Colin.
