Catharine Hartley, Ying Chang.
This book has left the library and is off on a frolic of its own. Perhaps we'll hear of its adventures sometime soon. Update: December 3, 2012 - This book has returned to the library, silent as to what it has been up to but waiting patiently for a new reader. Journal Entry 4 by Pooker3 at Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada on Wednesday, December 04, 2013. Well this book has made another return visit to LFL Seemed quite apropos to discover it there after shoveling my driveway this evening. Well I didn't quite get to a pole but my driveway is pretty long. It now awaits its next reader
Am first British woman to South Pole! Apart from the other British woman .
Am first British woman to South Pole! Apart from the other British woman who got here with me at the same. So she set off to the South Pole, after first clearing the little matter of £30,000 sponsorship, because she realised she could be the first British woman to walk there unaided. We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view. Hartley found happiness in the simplicity of the struggle, where putting one foot in front of the other was the essential task for the moment, the hour, the day. She discovered that although she was just about capable of working for the BBC, herding its guests and scouting locations, she didn't want to go up the corporate ladder.
November 17 2002, 12:00am, The Sunday Times. Catharine Hartley is a late member of this band of polar travellers turned authors, whose main interest to us is that she is female. Here we go again, off to the Pole, treading in the footsteps of those who have both dared to do and write about it - David Hempleman-Adams, Robert Swan and Ranulph Fiennes among them. We all know the mainstays of such stories. It’s cold, of course, very, very, very cold. Worst of all, it could be described as a lunar landscape.
Catharine and her companion Fiona Thornewill became the first British women of any nationality to have man-hauled their sleds to both. When Catharine listed walking to the South Pole among her New Year's resolutions, her friends reacted with scepticism and laughter, for she is not your usual polar explorer complete with beard and grim toughness
