North To The Night
A Year in the Arctic Ice
by Alvah Simon

"In June 1994, a 36 foot sailboat bucked steep North Atlantic seas, bound for adventure high above the Arctic Circle. After 2 years of intense preparation and with no savings or possessions other than their boat and provisions, a husband and wife journeyed toward an appointment with the polar winter. Had they known what lay ahead, they would not have gone." This modern epic ranks among the great adventure stories of all time. It is an odyssey of of sacrifice and endurance; of desperation and joy; of a couple seperated by circumstances and reunited by strength of will.
