Ten true stories of daring and danger from New Zealand adventurers. Race to the South Pole with Sir Edmund Hillary, find the end of the Nile with Cam McLeay and Garth MacIntyre, circumnavigate the world in a yacht with sixteen-year-old Laura Dekker.
Trek solo with Helen Thayer and her husky to the Magnetic North Pole, ride bikes down the spine of the Americas with Mark Watson and Hana Black, and many more exciting adventures — some known, some forgotten, and some just discovered.
