Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Prior to December 2018, no individual had ever crossed the landmass of Antarctica alone and without any outside assistance. After a burn accident in his early twenties, Colin O'Brady was told he might never walk again. From the depths of that crisis, he fought his way back and went on to set three mountaineering world records. This is the story of O'Brady's spectacular, record-breaking journey across the Antarctica and it is the story of the journey that led him to this endeavour.
