Description

When Chris Weyers decided to fulfill his childhood fantasy of trekking 1150 km to the South Pole, he got more than he bargained for. Joining a team of two hardened Arctic experts, within days, fear, pain and physical collapse became his constant companions. When Chris discovers he has a crippling injury he decides to keep it from the others, rather than be sent home. As he weakens and falls behind, he is forced to confront his demons, and in a desperate attempt to keep his place on the expedition, his battle for survival turns into a tense psychological contest. With his eyes firmly fixed on the prize, Chris is determined to make it to the Pole whatever the cost. But the brutal isolation of Antarctica is taking more of a toll on him than he could have ever imagined...White Demon is a first-hand account of a modern Antarctic adventure. The powerful true story of an expedition gone wrong, it's a tale of endurance that takes us deep into a brutal physical and intense psychological struggle, set in the harshest environment on earth.
