Abstract:

"It is the beginning of the century, and two teams of explorers are racing across a cold, windswept, deserted land to reach the furthest point from civilisation. This is, they find, 'an awfully long way'." "We are gripped by the progress of the two teams as they struggle with the elements, each other and the mules who accompany them. Johns and his men take the western route, over a rocky scree, gossiping, bickering and grumbling as they go. Meanwhile, Tostig's men make their way along a dry riverbed, in the east. They are fewer, with just five men and ten mules, and better organised than their rivals. But with Johns' team keeping apace in the distance, the race is on to reach the Agreed Furthest Point."--BOOK JACKET.
