"An epic story of sheer resolution and achievement. In 1955, at the age of 39, Richard Pape made world history when, in an ordinary British car he became the first man alive to drive from Latitude 71 degrees North, 600 miles above the Arctic Circle, across two-thirds of the world's surface to the southern tip of Africa."
