On Thin Ice
Breakdowns, Whiteouts, and Survival on the World's Deadliest RoadsBook - 2010
Every year a fleet of men travel beyond the northern equatorial line to the Arctic Circle, a region heavily endowed with natural resources. Locating these resources is relatively easy. Extracting and transporting them less so. The drivers charged with this duty spend two months travelling up to 355 miles on a naturally-formed road of ice. It is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. For more than 20 years Hugh Rowland has survived the ice roads. Known as The Polar Bear, Rowland here reveals his life on this road of ice and iss rich in anecdote and heroism.
