Sir Wally Herbert was a polar explorer of international distinction, who had a career spanning 50 years of polar travel.
“The Polar World” captures the spirit of the Arctic and Antarctic as never seen before - through the eyes of Sir Wally Herbert, a man who is the bridge between the heroic age of exploration and modern adventure; a visionary who has walked in the footsteps of all the greatest explorers, and learned the art of survival from the Inuit themselves.

Herbert was a polar explorer of international distinction, who had a career spanning 50 years of polar travel. He traveled with dog teams and open boats well over 25,000 miles, mapped about 46,000 square miles of new territory in the Antarctic, and led the first team to reach the North Pole via a surface route.

This superb collection of Sir Wally’s paintings, together with personal anecdotes of his experiences in the polar world and his connection with the polar pioneers of the past, as well as his descriptions of the inspiration behind his paintings, makes this book outstandingly valuable as a vital contribution to polar literature, and as a unique collectors item.
