Felicity Aston has spent over a decade travelling, working and living all over the Polar Regions. In 2009 she led the most international team of women ever to ski to the South Pole; this became the subject of her first book, Call of the White, a finalist in the Banff Mountain Book Competition in 2011. Outside Magazine, the leading adventure-travel magazine in the US, named her one of their 2012 Adventurers of the Year.
'... author Felicity Aston describes how she led an expedition of "ordinary women" from all over the world - including some who had never seen snow - on one of the world's toughest journeys, skiing to the South Pole. The results: frostbite, injuries, hardships - and also newfound persistence, strength, and friendship.' * Publishers Weekly (USA) *
