162pp / 978-1-909075-52-8

Solo Explorer tells two stories. Mark Wood describes his exhilarating yet dangerous attempt to walk solo unsupported and unaided to both the South and North Geographic Poles. Like all great stories though, it has its twists.

This journey in a freezer gives clarity of mind to look back on other ventures that led him along the path from a small boy based in the centre of the UK, to becoming an explorer who creates global education programmes for millions of students worldwide.

What binds all explorers across the ages, whether it is ice, sea, desert, mountains, jungles or space, is the natural ability to story-tell.

Mark Wood is an established polar explorer and adventurer who operates within the extremes of our planet. Expeditions include reaching the Magnetic North Pole, the Geomagnetic North Pole twice, and completing solo expeditions to both the Geographic North and South Poles.

He has been a part of major BBC and Channel 5 documentaries and over the years has trained and led people to the extremes of the planet. His own award-winning documentaries have shown the life of dog teams in Alaska, a solo survival film in the extremes, and a complex cutting-edge expedition documentary showing the harsh reality of global warming and its impact on the Arctic Ocean as his team crossed to the North Pole.

Mark’s reason for exploring is based on inspiring the next generation to appreciate the planet and to also encourage them to take action on the issues we all face towards the reality of climate change.

Through Mark’s expeditions he now has an outreach of over one million students worldwide.
