Summary
You've watched him battle the odds on History Channel's Ice Road Truckers. Now read Hugh "The Polar Bear" Rowland's own storm-by-storm account of surviving and conquering the infamous ice roads of the Arctic. Every year, a fleet of truckers travels through the Canadian Arctic, battling subzero temperatures and perilous conditions. The region is heavily endowed with natural resources. Locating this abundance of natural gas, conflict-free diamonds, and gold is relatively easy; extracting and transporting these goods is another matter entirely. These elite truckers spend two months traveling thousands of miles on naturally formed roads of ice that is only sixteen inches thick. It is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. From the first snowstorm to the final thaw, this book traces the history of ice road trucking, chronicles Rowland's preparation for the trek, and follows him through his perilous journey.--From publisher description
