The Race to the South Pole
From the Stories From History series, The Race to the South Pole takes a completely factual look at the all but impossible journey to the South Pole. This book is presented in a fast-paced, graphic novel format including bright, action-packed scenes.

A Story of Terrible Tragedy and Joyous Success
In the early 1900s, one destination remained untouched by human beings the South Pole. Antarctica's ruthless weather, including blizzards and temperatures that can reach -119F in the winter, made human beings' attempts to reach this remote location all but impossible. However, two extraordinary men were determined to overcome the odds in a race to reach the South Pole. Thus began their voyage of frostbite, starvation, fame, and for some death. The Race to the South Pole is sure to capture any reader's attention.

    South Pole October 26, 2010
    Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
    I found the race to the South Pole very interesting!  There were a lot of facts that I hadn't heard before.  This book will give your older children a jump start to researching a number of different areas.  Did you know that it could get down to -119 degrees.  There is a lot of great scientific information about the north and south pole that is very interesting. This book will teach your child more than just history.

    I'm so glad I took the plunge and ordered it July 29, 2009
    Reviewer: Keeley B. from Franklin, TN  
    ...I bought the historical graphic novels as a way to get my middle schooler into reading something somewhat educational. =D  I didn't hand them to him, I told him they were mine.  He could read the Tintin, but I was going to read these historical ones first.  Muhahahaha.  Of course, he started sneaking them....and enjoying them.... =D =D

    So anyway, we've been having just a delightful time with the shipment of books.  I'm so very impressed with your company.  The confirmation email came immediately, the books were shipped out very quickly, and arrived in absolutely excellent condition.   Thank you so very much.
