    In May 2003, the country was gripped by the fate of arctic explorer Pen Hadow, stranded with diminishing supplies on the ice cap after successfully reaching the Pole.

    Hadow was the first man to reach the North Pole alone and unsupported via the arduous Canadian route. Despite severe setbacks, he walked, skiied and swam for two months to fulfill a lifetime's dream.

    Solo is the gripping, inspirational autobiography of a true British hero.

Pen Hadow has been a Polar Explorer for over fifteen years. Through his company, The Polar Travel Company, he has helped many other people realise their dreams of reaching the Poles. He acted as consultant to explorer Benedict Allen for his 2001 BBC series Ice Dogs.
