Polar explorer and teacher Ann Bancroft was 10 years old when she first read “Endurance,” the gripping account of Ernest Shackleton and his crew, who in 1915 were trapped in the Antarctica and survived for five months by eating dogs, penguins and seals. Since then, Bancroft has become the first woman known to ski to both the North Pole and South Pole. In 1986, she was part of an expedition that used dogsleds to travel from the Northwest Territories of Canada to the North Pole. She also led the 1993 American Women’s Expedition to the South Pole, a 67-day trek of 660 miles on skis.
