NEW! “Helen Thayer’s Arctic Adventure” (Capstone)

Winner of a 2017 Teachers’ Choice Award by Learning ® Magazine (Children’s Book category)


In 1988, explorer Helen Thayer became the first woman to walk alone to any of the Earth’s poles. She skied and walked across the vast frozen Arctic to the North Pole. She did it alone — with just the supplies she could pull on her sled and the companionship of her new-found dog, Charlie.

Helen Thayer’s Arctic Adventure is a nonfiction picture book about how one woman and her dog faced down fierce ice storms, a ferocious polar bear, and fleeting fear to reach the top of the world. Experience her journey.

Available now at Amazon.
