Nearly 100 years after Robert Peary controversially told the world that he had reached the North Pole for the very first time, and in just thirty-seven days, explorer Tom Avery set out to show that he had been telling the truth. Navigating treacherous pressure ridges, deadly channels of open water, bitterly cold temperatures, and travelling just as Peary did with dog teams and replica wooden sledges, Avery and his team were to cover the 413 nautical miles to the North Pole in just 36 days and 22 hours, setting a new world record and reaching the pole some four hours faster than Peary. Weaving Arctic expedition history with thrilling extreme adventure, To the End of the Earth is Avery's story of how he and his team risked their lives to solve polar exploration's greatest mystery.
