Walter William Herbert 1934-2007 - Adventures and Explorers 46/50

On May 29, 1969 four men scrambled ashore on a rocky island at the edge of the polar ice. They had just completed the 'longest, lonliest journey on Earth' - the first crossing of the Arctic ice cap, from Barrow Point to Small Blackboard Island, Svalbard. Led by Wally Herbert, the party had drifted and travelled 3,800 miles on the ice, and spent winter there. Inquisitive polar bears and sudden ice cracks provided several dangerous moments, and the expedition's success confirmed Wally Herbert as one of the most experienced and hardy Polar travellers.
