A Journey to the Arctic - Pulling Sled



"Everything in my life led me toward Arctic exploration. As a youngster I learned the skills needed for polar work-skills that other people find very hard to learn. I was eight years old when I drove my own team of dogs, and at ten I had a rifle of my own. From earliest boyhood, I played and worked with the hunters, so long sled trips became pleasant routine for me."
