'Sastrugi' tells the gripping story of Jonathon Bradshaw who, at the age of 36, gave up every modern comfort and started cycling from London to New York via the Arctic Circle. After crossing the barren volcanic deserts of Iceland, only Greenland and its vast polar icecap stood in the way of him reaching North America. This is the story of how Jonathon crossed the Greenland icecap with no previous polar training, his serendipitous meeting with three Irish adventurers that would change his life forever, and how he confirmed his place in history as a member of the first Irish team to ski to the South Pole. Join him on his arduous six-month adventure across two of the coldest and most remote places on earth. This book contains scenes of mild peril, extreme cold and hunger, incredible landscapes, intense friendships, and copious amounts of self-discovery - with a few crevasses and helicopter rescues thrown in for good measure.
