North Pole Tenderfoot
Join Doug Hall on an adventure to the top of the earth - the North Pole. Leading the expedition is Paul Schurke of Ely, Minnesota, a genuine adventure hero.
As a brilliant businessman, Hall helps the world's leading companies with big ideas and bold innovations, but on this trip he is a rookie, a raw beginner. In Admiral Peary's words, he is a "tenderfoot."
Peary had long been Hall's hero, and following in the great explorer's footsteps was a dream the tenderfoot wanted to fulfill. In fulfilling, that dream, he also hoped to raise awareness for his Great Aspirations! charity, which focuses on teaching parents how to inspire their children.
"Thrills & spills abound on each of the dogsled treks I've guided to the North Pole. But the one recounted here resulted in something extraordinary - Doug Hall's maverick perspective that sparkles fresh as sea ice on why a regular guy would pit himself against one of the world's most extreme challenges and, more importantly, how Doug has employed that experience to expand horizons for both himself and others. You'll want to don a sweater and warm socks for this lively read (and maybe a life jacket for that upcoming plunge in the drink.) Be prepared to journey with Doug beyond the North Pole - to the realm of what's possible when you put your mind to something big."
